Abhilasha Singh, Lead – Affinity Partnerships, Riskcovry said that the rise in third party claims has prompted this move along with zero revision in rates over the past two years due to the pandemic. The increase in rates will impact customers across the spectrum. Third party premium as a component is part of both comprehensive as well as third party liability policies. There is an additional discount offered to passenger and commercial EV / Hybrid vehicles to increase adoption of environmentally friendly technology. Most importantly it will help form a stable pool of premium for third party claims which are often delayed or stuck in legal processes.
