After tasting success in their 92 paise travel insurance policy scheme for passengers, IRCTC is now planning to launch another scheme in which they plan to provide insurance for passengers’ gadgets such as mobile phones and laptops.
The decision was taken during the first round meeting between IRCTC officials and insurance companies, after which IRCTC Chairman, A K Manocha said that they have shared the idea with the insurance companies.
“There are some concerns that insurance companies have about false claims. We have shared a few ideas with them and also asked for their suggestions.”With regards to insurance companies concern, Manocha said that they are still looking for more suggestion but so far have come up with few basic ideas.
Manocha further added that IRCTC wishes to make the insurance scheme available in cases of rail accidents as well as of thefts.
“Offering this policy to credit card holders or government officials in the initial stage is one of the ideas we have floated to mitigate cases of false claims.”
