Back in 2018, the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority Of India (IRDAI) had made it mandatory for all general insurers to offer only three-year third-party motor insurance policies for new cars from September 2018.
However, the authority has now decided to withdraw the three-year third-party motor insurance policy order since August 1, 2020. The IRDAI stated that the distribution of package policies has its challenges due to affordability factors for a large section of vehicle owners in India.
Some of the major drawbacks of the third-party motor insurance policy included difficulty for insurers to evaluate the premium for long term 'Own Damage' cover, there were also high possibilities of forced selling from insurers due to the interlinked financial interests and also facing trouble evaluating the no claim bonus over a three-year policy.
Now, insurance companies can only sell a one-year duration Own Damage cover along with the mandatory three-year or five-year third party cover. Multi-year Own Damage covers will not be permitted.
