    Hi Ravi

    My requirement is Home Loan Insurance . The loan is with HDFC , they have suggested one plan called HOME SURAKSHA PLUS which covers following

    § First diagnosis of a critical illness
    § Accidental Death (Dependent child education benefit )..This is over & above the sum-insured.
    § Permanent Total Disability
    § Loss of Job
    § Loss or damage to the property on account of Fire and Allied Perils (Home Insurance)
    § Loss or damage to household contents on account of Fire and Allied Perils and Burglary/Theft (Home Insurance)

    How ever , i feel the premium is on a higher side . For sum assured of 40 lakh , single premium of 1.25 lakhs for five yr coverage (they do not have annual premium option ). Not sure thats a standard rates or they have suggested an expensive plan .

    Thats why i am looking for other similar products to compare the premium and coverages


    1. This Home loan insurance is a unique product which Term might not replace it fully. For e.g. even if Term covers life, permanent disability etc, it doesn’t cover fire or theft. So, I think it is purely individual choice and one has to decide whether to go or not. I remember ICICI Lombard also suggested me similar product for 60K 2 years back and it is for 5 years. I didn’t go for it as its duration is only 5 years.

  2. Hi Deashish,
    Your reuirement of insurance is for Home or Homeloan?
    if it is for homeloan, then I feel term insurance is also a better option. You can check with your bank (your homeloan bank) as mostly they would be having plans which covers homeloan.
