As per the Motor Vehicles Act of India, it is mandatory for every vehicle plying on the roads to be insured with at least a third-party liability cover. Having a car insurer protects the insurer against unforeseen liabilities arising as a result of mishap.
Now, claim settlement is an important aspect of the car insurance and the process can be broadly classified into two; reimbursement claim process and cashless claim process, out of which cashless claim process is more popular among the car owners.
Cashless garage or network garage is a garage authorised by the insurer for the repair of a vehicle insured under them. Usually the insurers will have tie-ups with a number of garages which could fix any insured car post a mishap, provided that the insured has availed the cashless garage facility at the time of policy purchase or renewal. Once the car is repaired by a cashless garage, the insurer pays the garage for the repairs made. Here, the insured is benefited as he/she will not have to pay for the repairs at all except for the value of vehicle’s depreciation at the time and the deductibles.
