      New India Assurance was pretty good in the overall deal for the car insurance policy. I was able to buy the insurance in just five minutes. The policy coverage is good and most of all the cost was the major reason I chose them. Earlier I paid 11K to 12K and now the cost is of 5K. The benefits are more or else the same.

      I earlier used the services of New India Assurance for the car insurance. I also had a claim experience once and the claim process was good. There were cash less garage facility as well. The reason I did not continue this year is because the premium rate is very costly and the customer support was not up to the mark, they did not do the policy well.
