IRDAI Set to Launch Single Insurance Plan For Life, Health & Property
Updated On Jun 01, 2023
The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) plans to launch the “Bima Trinity” insurance policy, said officials at the CII event on May 22. The plan intends to offer life, health, and property coverage under a single insurance policy. This comprehensive insurance plan would enable consumers to obtain protection from mishaps at a low cost.
The IRDAI is collaborating with the General Insurance Council and the Life Insurance Council to design this comprehensive protection strategy. The official stated that the “Bima Trinity” plan will include Bima Vistaar—benefit-based comprehensive cover for the rural population, Bima Sugam—the digital platform and Bima Vahak—a women-centric distribution channel to provide insurance protection even in the remotest parts of the country.
In October 2022, the IRDAI formed a committee to investigate and search for new ways to improve the functioning and operations of three sectors of Bima: Bima Vahak, Bima Vistaar, and Bima Sugam.
Talking about the same, IRDAI officials also stated that parametric triggers will obliterate the dependency of the surveyor or assessor. The policyholders of the Bima Trinity insurance policy will receive the claim benefit directly to their bank accounts.
How Can You Benefit From Health, Life, And Property Insurance?
Everyone must invest in these three types of insurance plans to secure themselves financially. Here's why each of the three is significant:
Health Insurance: Medical emergencies can arise at any time. Consequently, when you invest in health insurance, the insurance company bears the financial burden that you incur due to hefty medical bills and treatment costs.
Life Insurance: It is another important type of insurance in which you should invest to financially protect your loved ones. Life insurance provides financial coverage for nominees in the event of the demise of the insured during the policy's tenure.
Property Insurance: Mishaps like fire can cause serious damage to your property, causing a financial burden for you. However, when you purchase property insurance, an insurance company will cover the cost of any loss or damage that happens to your property.
How Will the Bima Trinity Insurance Plan Benefit the Policyholders?
The launch of the Bima Trinity insurance plan will help policyholders enjoy coverage of all three crucial insurance plans under a single policy. Additionally, you will be able to secure yourself and your loved ones financially against serious mishaps like medical emergencies, the death of the breadwinner of the family, and any other casualties that happen to your property.
