The Central government has put out a draft notification notifying its intention to increase the third party car insurance premium. The base insurance premium was last hiked in June 2019. So, car owners, be ready to shell out more from June 1, 2022. 

Following are the new base premiums for private ICE-powered and electric cars:

Single-year premium rates

Three-year premium rates

Not exceeding 1000cc

Rs 2,094

Rs 6,521

1000cc - 1500cc

Rs 3,416

Rs 10,640

Above 1500cc

Rs 7,897

Rs 24,596

These are the rates for the basic third party insurance cover. If you get any riders added, then that will be chargeable over these rates. The premium now starts from Rs 2,094, going up to Rs 7,897, depending upon the engine capacity. You can also opt for three-year insurances.

Rs 1,780

Rs 5,543


Rs 2,904

Rs 9,044

Above 65kWh

Rs 6,712

Under the 30kWh limit, you only have the Tata Tigor EV currently. The 30-65kWh has most of the budget electric cars, including the Tata Nexon EV, MG ZS EV, Hyundai Kona electric, and Mini Cooper SE. All the premium EVs are found to have a battery capacity of over 65kWh. 

For information, third party insurance only covers third party damages. In case if you have crashed into someone else’s car, then the latter’s damages can only be claimed. The said policy holder (first person) won’t get any insurance money.
