From September 1, 2018, all new two-wheelers sold in the country will require a five-year third party insurance
If you aspire to own a new two-wheeler, get ready to pay a bit more moolah as part of the on-road price. Starting 1 September, 2018, buyers of new two-wheelers will have to purchase a five-year insurance cover upfront.
The Supreme Court, on July 20, ordered that third-party insurance cover for a new car be for a three year period, and five years for two-wheelers. The order will apply to all insurance policies sold from 1 September, 2018.
While this may seem like bad news to some, it could save two-wheeler owners the trouble of renewing insurance on a yearly basis and also worry less about vehicle damage.
|New Two-Wheeler Insurance|
|Type||Current Premium (1 year)||Long Term Premium (5 year)||Multiplier|
|Below 75cc||Rs 427||Rs 1045||2.45|
|75cc - 150cc||Rs 720||Rs 3285||4.56|
|Above 350cc||Rs 2323||Rs 13,034||5.61|
