Need For Motor Insurance in Punjab

Just like how a driving licence in India gives you a permit to ride a vehicle on the road, having insurance for a bike and car shields your finances during tough times. Cases of accident, theft, vandalism, etc., are common, and if you don't have the right car or bike insurance policy, the financial loss can be taxing.

Not just this, as per the Motor Vehicle Act, having basic third-party motor insurance is mandatory. However, the coverage in basic 4 or 2-wheeler insurance is limited. With many possibilities of financial losses during riding, such as personal damage, damages due to natural calamities, etc., a comprehensive insurance for 2-wheelers or 4-wheelers is a suitable choice.

Further, our Tata AIG long-term two-wheeler insurance plan keeps you worry-free about your motor insurance policy renewal frequently.
