Is CTP Included in Comprehensive Insurance?

The Indian law mandates that all car owners in India have a third-party insurance policy. This reduces the policyholder’s financial responsibility for any harm a third party suffers due to the insured car. A surveyor will examine the damages and verify the repair costs before the insurance company pays the claim.

A comprehensive car insurance policy is a package that covers both parties involved in an accident. It provides comprehensive coverage for damages to the insured car and third-party liabilities and policyholders. While it is not mandatory, a comprehensive policy compensates for third-party liabilities from accidents caused by the policyholder.

Difference Between CTP and Comprehensive Cover

Comprehensive insurance comes at a higher price but provides complete coverage. Its salient features are listed below:

  • complete coverage for both parties involved in an accident
  • offers additional add-ons
  • No Claim Bonus if a policyholder doesn't make a claim in a policy year

Third-party car insurance is a basic policy that covers the following:

  • offers protection to a third-party car or person who met with an accident involving you
  • personal accident coverage for your injuries, but it doesn't cover the damages to your car
  • premium rate is low and pre-determined by the IRDAI, making it a cheaper option
  • suitable for those driving an old vehicle or people who drive their car less often
  • doesn't offer any customisation options or add-ons

Although the premium is comparatively higher than a third-party insurance policy, a comprehensive car insurance plan provides a wider scope of coverage.
