New India Zero Depreciation Add-on
When it comes to cars, their worth depreciates with time. Due to this, insurers charge a higher premium for their insurance and reduce the claim amount with time. To avoid this situation, you can include an add-on cover known as Zero Depreciation by The New India Assurance Company Limited to your comprehensive or standalone own-damage policy.
The Zero Depreciation add-on cover will offer coverage against the default depreciation applicable on your car and its parts, which will help you get a higher claim in return. You can get this cover added to your comprehensive or standalone own-damage car insurance policy by paying a little extra premium. The absence of this add-on cover will make you receive a lower claim amount as the claim amount would be calculated after considering the depreciation amount.
