Recent years have seen a rise in the frequency and severity of earthquakes, with Turkey being the latest to experience a devastating earthquake. The question arises as to whether India is prepared to face a similar natural disaster.
While it is impossible to predict the exact timing and impact of future earthquakes in India, it is essential for individuals and businesses to understand the earthquake risks in their region and to consider obtaining earthquake insurance to protect themselves financially in the event of an earthquake.
India is divided into four earthquake zones, each with its own earthquake insurance rates, ranging from 0.05 per mille for low-intensity zones to 0.50 per mille for high-intensity zones. This earthquake rate is included as part of property insurance policies to provide coverage for assets. Home, commercial properties, industries, storage areas, and machinery can be insured by purchasing a property insurance policy, such as a Standard Fire and Special Perils Policy (SFSP), Industrial All Risk (IAR) policy, Contractors Plant and Machinery (CPM) policy. Construction and erection projects can also be protected against losses caused by earthquakes by purchasing Contractors All Risk (CAR) and Erection All Risk (EAR) policies.
In addition to property insurance, individuals should consider obtaining life insurance policies as well. Many life insurance policies cover losses caused by earthquakes, providing financial protection for loved ones in the event of such a disaster.
