Personal Protect Cover Costs Less than a Cup of Chai!

April 24 2016
Personal Accident Insurance Cost Less than Tea

Ensure comprehensive coverage and affordability

Yes, you read it right! For most of us, a personal protect cover that can cushion finances against accidents may cost less than a daily cup of chai. Think of all the things that you spend on an average day – that burger costing ₹15, or that samosa worth ₹10. Or even that cup of cutting chai that costs ₹8. Now compare it to a personal protect cover premium, which will cost you just ₹6 per day!

Why do You Need a Personal Protect Cover?

According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), 51 cases of road accidents took place every one hour during 2014 in India, wherein 16 persons were killed. During 2014, a total of 4,50,898 cases of ‘Road Accidents’ were reported which rendered 4,77,731 persons injured and 1,41,526 dead. Deaths due to ‘Road Accidents’ in the country have increased by 2.9% during 2014 (1,41,526) compared to 2013 (1,37,423).

The increasingly congested roads, coupled with inadequate infrastructure and negligence of traffic rules has resulted in this steep rise in the number of traffic accidents. Moreover, a majority of the Indian population does not have adequate insurance cover and pay hospital expenses out of their pockets in case of any mis-haps.
