Mega package policy applicable for refineries law commercial essay

Insurance has some common concepts across policies. We give below some of them: Sum Assured: This is an amount in Rupees giving the maximum value covered under the policy. In some policies it is possible that their may an overall limit and then a sublimit for one accident/incidence. Period Of Policy: This is generally one year. Reassured: Is the insurance company who is the principle insured for the policy. All information regarding any incidence which falls under the policy should be informed to the respective insurance companies. Deductible : This is an amount which the corporation agrees not to claim from the insurance company. To the extent of this amount no claim will be payable by the insurance company to the corporation. This amount will be deducted from any claim which arises beyond this value. For eg: a deductible amount of Rs. 5 lakhs means, no claim can be made to the insurance company for losses upto Rs. 5 lakhs, in case a loss of Rs. 6 lakh is suffered the corporation will get Rs. 1 lakh only. Insurable Event : Every policy covers a risk and a loss arising due to occurrence of some specified events. Only if all conditions like location, nature of event etc are as specified in the policy the claim is tenable with the insurance company. Exclusions To The Policy : The insurance policy generally excludes coverage of certain losses occurring due events which are not covered under the policy.

Some Points To Remember At The Time Of Claim :

Information of an accident/event leading to a claim should be informed to the Insurance department of BPCL. This information would be conveyed to the Insurance Company. The Insurance company would appoint a surveyor. The surveyor appointed would from there on be the focal point for all claims to collect data, analyse the data and to finalise settlement of the claim.
