Coverage for compound wall and landscaping
If you are staying in an independent house, then you can cover your compound wall and landscaping too. You can provide a separate sum insured for these in addition to the building sum insured.
Long Term Cover
You have the flexibility to choose a tenure of your choice, starting from 1 year to 20 years. Long term insurance provides complete peace of mind and secures your house for up to 20 years. It also helps avoid the hassle of you having to track your renewal date and renew the policy every year.
This product provides you a very useful escalation benefit, which ensures increase in your base sum insured of 10% each year, for the complete tenure of your policy. This will ensure that the available sum insured each year is constantly raising and keeping pace with the increase in construction cost due to inflation. This benefit is available only in a long term policy. This benefit is available to you at no extra cost. The below example gives clarity on how the escalation will be arrived at.
|Sum insured at inception of policy period||Rs 1,00,000|
|Sum insured for the 2nd year of policy||Rs 1,00,000+10,000|
|Sum insured for the 3rd year of policy||Rs 1,00,000+20,000|
and so on, on completion of every one year till expiry
of the policy tenure
If you do not avail the Escalation Benefit, you have the option to opt for a tenure discount, as per the table given below.
|10||Ten years and above||50%|

Basis of calculation of Sum insured for Building
For all Plans other than Bronze
Sum Insured on Reinstatement Value Basis shall be the Reconstruction Value for the "Building", excluding of the cost of the land, whose Sum Insured is arrived at as = A X B where
A. Area of the "Flat/House" (Square Feet) indicated in the Registered Sale Deed Agreement.
B. Prevailing Present Day Cost of Construction rates in Area/Locality where the insured property is situated.
Example for calculation of sum insured on reinstatement value basis
Total built up sq ft area of Flat as specified in Registered Sale Deed Agreement – 1,000
Cost of construction – Rs.2,500/- (excluding land value)
Sum Insured – 1,000 (sq ft) X Rs.2,500/- = Rs.25,00,000
For Bronze Plan
For Indemnity Value basis the formula shall be arrived at as sum insured = A X B X (1 - Depreciation at the Rate of 2.5 % per annum X Age of the Building).
Example for calculation of sum insured on Indemnity value basis
Total sq ft area of Flat as specified in Registered Sale Deed Agreement – 1,000
Cost of construction – Rs.2,000/- (excluding land value)
Age of the building – 4 years
Depreciation – 2.50%
Sum Insured – 1,000 (sq ft) X Rs.2,000/- X (1-10%) = Rs.18,00,000
Cost of construction range for structure
Normal – Rs.2,500/- to Rs.2,999/- per square feet
Standard - Rs.3,000/- to Rs.3,999/- per square feet
Premium – Rs.4,000/- to Rs.4,999/- per square feet
Luxury – Rs.5,000/- per square feet and above
