Acko General Insurance has offered a one month insurance extension to car and bike owners to help them amid the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.

The customers who renew or are first time buyers of Acko’s auto insurance policy will now pay only for 12 months and will get a free one-month extension.

The initiative is aimed at providing customers some relief during the one month of lockdown where their vehicles are not used.

“Since most vehicles are parked and not in use during this period, we want to support our customers and do the right thing in a transparent manner by extending their insurance policy by a month for no additional cost.

“Given these challenging times, we all need to support each other and ease the burden in whatever small way possible,” Acko General Insurance Product Strategy head Animesh Das has been quoted saying by The Economic Times.

The Ministry of Finance previously announced a grace period for premium payments for third party policies till 21st April.
