TATA Indigo eCS Car Insurance: FAQs

1. Children were playing in the parking lot and the cricket ball hit my car windshield and broke it. Can I get it replaced under insurance?

Yes, you can if you have a comprehensive insurance policy. The act of a cricket ball hitting the car is considered a man-made hazard and you can get the car windshield repaired or changed and claim for the expenses incurred.

2. My car was parked in the basement and was flooded due to heavy rainfall. I tried to take it out of the basement but the engine failed. My insurance claim was rejected, why?

When you started your car, it caused engine flooding leading to a breakdown. This is consequential damage caused as a result of your action and is not a man-made hazard or natural disaster. It is specifically excluded from your policy coverage.

3. My car met with an accident and I made a claim. The insurance company told me that I was driving on the wrong side and hence my claim is rejected. Are they justified in doing this?

When you drive on the wrong side of the road, you are carrying out an action against the laws of the land. It is considered illegal. Accidents caused due to illegal actions of the driver are not included in the policy and you cannot make a claim.

4. I was travelling with my pet dog when I met an accident. Can I claim the expenses for the treatment of my pet?

Sorry, it is not possible. You can claim for the medical expenses you incurred due to injury in an accident, provided you have the personal accident insurance (as mandated by law). The scope of the insurance does not include any animal being carried in the car.
