As such, you would have to inform the insurance company of any modification done on the car. If the modification increases the value of the car or if an additional part is added, like a CNG kit, the premium would go up. On the other hand, if the car is modified for the use of a disabled individual, you would be allowed a premium discount.
The third-party premium is determined by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI). It depends on the engine capacity of the car. The IRDAI reviews the third-party premiums regularly, i.e., after every financial year, and might increase or decrease it.
In the case of a new car, you need 3-year third-party coverage as mandated by the IRDAI. The own damage cover, however, is available only on an annual basis. As such, you can either buy two separate plans – the 3-year standalone third party plan and an annual standalone own damage plan, or you can buy a bundled policy that covers third party liabilities for 3 years and own damage for one year.
