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.
“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.

“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.”
Manocha further added that IRCTC wishes to make the insurance scheme available in cases of rail accidents as well as of thefts.
IRCTC’s proposal to give theft insurance comes just weeks after they started 92 paisa travel insurance scheme, which over the weeks has got over one crore passengers opting for it.
But this insurance only applies in cases of accidents or an untoward incident such as terrorist attack, dacoity, rioting, shootout or arson.
