BENGALURU: Car owners who lost their vehicles in the fire accident on Saturday will have their insurance claims expedited, provided they have paid their insurance premiums till date. The Ministry of Defence has requested the Department of Financial Services (DFS) to open a special insurance claims cell to facilitate speedy claims for affected people. Some private insurance companies had also opened a cell at the venue to help distressed owners.
Lakshman, Senior Divisional Manager, United Insurance India, said, “Not all owners may have taken insurance from one company. If the claims are handled systematically, owners can get the eligible insurance amount within seven to ten days, and the amount will be the same as what they had opted for in the insurance policy.”
To help those who lost their vehicles source these documents, the Transport Department has opened a centre to assist people in procuring duplicate documents, like driving licences and vehicle registration certificates.
The centre is functioning at RTO Yelahanka.
For assistance, call: 080-29729908/29729909; 9449864050
