New Delhi. In an important order, the Madras High Court has ruled that from September 1, whenever a new vehicle is sold, its bumper-to-bumper insurance should be mandatory. This insurance will be in addition to the insurance covering the driver, passenger and owner of the vehicle for a period of 5 years.
Justice S Vaidyanathan has recently said in his order that after this period the owner of the vehicle should be careful in protecting the interests of the driver, passenger and third party as well as himself. So that there is no unnecessary burden on them. This is because bumper-to-bumper insurance cannot be extended for more than five years. Let us tell you that in bumper-to-bumper insurance, those parts of the vehicle will also be covered in which insurance companies generally do not cover.

For this the High Court gave the decision – He allowed a writ petition of New India Assurance Company Limited challenging the order dated 7 December 2019 of the Motor Accident Claims Tribunal of the Special District Court at Erode. The insurance company stated that the insurance policy in question was only for damage caused to the vehicle by a third party and not by the occupants of the vehicle. The insurance company argued that the coverage can be increased if the car owner pays additional premium.
The judge said that it is sad that when a vehicle is sold, the buyer is not clearly informed about the terms of the policy and its importance. Similarly, while buying a vehicle, the buyer is also not interested in understanding the terms and conditions of the policy thoroughly, as he is more concerned about the performance of the vehicle and not the policy.
