If the customer sells the vehicle to another person, the Insurance can be transferred in the name of the buyer. The buyer (transferee) has to apply for transfer of Insurance with us, within 14 days from the date of transfer of the vehicle in his name. If the customer wants to substitute another private car of his in this policy, the policy will not be transferred to the buyer. The buyer (transferee) has to buy a fresh Insurance.
An endorsement is a written evidence of an agreed change to a policy. It is a document that incorporates changes in the terms of the policy. If there are any alterations to be done in the policy the customer needs to approach the Insurance Company to effect the change in the policy. This is done by way of an endorsement. An endorsement may be issued at the time of issuing the policy to provide additional benefits and cover (e.g., legal liability to driver) or to impose restrictions (e.g., accidental damage deductible). The wordings of those endorsements are provided in the tariff. An endorsement may also be issued subsequently to record changes such as change of address, change of name, change of vehicle, etc.
Yes, the policy can be cancelled at the option of the customer with 7 days notice to the insurer and the insurer will cancel the policy on Short period basis and refund of premium if any, will be made. The refund will be subject to no claim under the policy and retention of minimum premium of Rs 100. But cancellation would be made only after ensuring that the vehicle is insured elsewhere at least for Liability Only policy.
If cheque bounce intimation is sent to the customer, the customer needs to approach the nearest office of the Insurance Company for fresh payment immediately. The customer needs to produce his vehicle for inspection along with bank charges of Rs 200 to be paid. It is more critical in case of Motor Insurance because the vehicle will be on road without any insurance and if any claim arises during the intermediate period, the Insurer will not be in a position to pay the claim since the premium has not been received.
