Policy Coverage

Perils covered are as under:

What will be the level of coverage?


• In Burglary Policy, the Sum Insured should be fixed on current market prices for stocks. For other items such as furniture, fixture, equipment, etc., it can be fixed either on Market Value (i.e. new replacement cost less depreciation) or on a Reinstatement Value basis.

• Further, to cover the fluctuating stocks at one place or at many places or variations due to seasonality, you can choose from our Floater, Declaration or Floater Declaration Policies.

• You can also opt for our First Loss Policy where the Sum Insured chosen by you is a percentage of the full value of property in respect of stocks of bulk nature, where it is impossible for the entire stocks/contents to be burgled at one time.
