Bhubaneswar: Are you planning to buy a new car or a two-wheeler in the recent future? If yes, then wait for a few days, until the beginning of August and you might get your vehicle at a cheaper rate.
The change in prices of vehicles will come into effect from August 1 due to the implementation of be new insurance rules by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI). IRDAI will be withdrawing its long-term insurance package plans of three or five years.
The rule mandating long-term motor vehicle insurance for three or five years will be replaced with one-year, own-damage insurance. This insurance cover will be a necessary when purchasing a new vehicle.
However, the third-party insurance cover will remain mandatory. The third-party insurance cover extends for three years for cars and five years for two-wheelers respectively.
The sales of automobiles dipped in the first half of the country due to Covid-19 lockdown. As the automobile industry is slowly opening up in the second half of the year, this decision by IRDAI might boost up sales.
