1. What is the value of my shop?

Your shop’s value is assessed as per its reinstatement value i.e. the cost of rebuilding it completely. For example, if your shop is 800 sq. ft. and the going construction rate is Rs.1,200 per sq. ft., the sum insured for your shop is Rs. 9,60,000.


2. What is the value of the merchandise in my shop?


The contents in a shop are assessed on their value at the time of purchasing the shopkeepers’ insurance policy, i.e. the cost of buying a similar new item, after deducting appropriate depreciation, based on the age of the item. This valuation includes electrical and mechanical appliances.


3. Can I select the items to be insured in my shop?


Yes, you have that choice. The shopkeepers’ insurance policy covers various perils and you can decide the type of cover you want to purchase.


4. What happens to my shopkeepers’ insurance policy if I sell my shop?


If the new owner of the shop wants to continue the cover, the insurance company may issue an endorsement in your name and transfer the policy to the new owner’s name. Otherwise, you can cancel the policy and take a refund from the insurance company.


What is the Claims Process?


In the event of a mishap, the first thing to do is report it to the insurer. Submit a written statement, so that the insurance company can provide you with a claim form. Fill up the claim form and submit it to the insurance office along with supporting documentation – an estimate of repairs, vouchers, invoices, proof, investigation reports, etc; typically the insurer should receive all your paperwork within a few days of the mishap. In case of theft, the police must be informed and a First Investigation Report (FIR) has to be filed. In case of third party liability, you must forward all letters, claims, notices, summons, etc to the insurance company
