As per the combined police data from all the states, almost 1200 accidents take place every day, leading to the death of 400 people. This is up by 5% in 2016 as compared to 2015. Now, that is a gigantic and an alarming number when compared to any other part of the world. Majority of these accidents are attributed to reckless driving and not following road security conventions. The answer to this grave problem can partly be answered with one little known data tracking method such as telematics.
To this date, almost 70% of the cars are insured in India’s ever growing insurance market and more are likely to follow suit in this booming age. This brings us to an important question:
Is it the right time to consider telematics insurance India??
Telematics Insurance in India
Telematics insurance is already successful in countries like UK , Italy, and Germany and is slowly gaining prominence in USA as well.
As the car insurance and bike insurance premiums are slowly on the rise in India, it should make sense for the insurers to offer this type of an insurance.
