General Insurance provides much-needed protection against unforeseen events such as accidents, illness, fire, burglary et al.
Unlike Life Insurance, General Insurance is not meant to offer returns but is a protection against contingencies.Almost everything that has a financial value in life and has a probability of getting lost, stolen or damaged can be covered through General Insurance policy.
Property (both movable and immovable), vehicle, cash, household goods, health, dishonesty and also one's liability towards others can be covered under general insurance policy.
Under certain Acts of Parliament, some types of insurance like Motor Insurance and Public Liability Insurance have been made compulsory.
