How does a No Claim Bonus help me?


The No Claim Bonus is a great way to progressively reduce your motor insurance premium.

For example, the table below shows the premium payable towards a Maruti Wagon R costing Rs.3.6 lakhs, over six years in following scenarios:

  • Scenario 1: When no claim is made and the No Claim Bonus is earned, as applicable
  • Scenario 2: When a claim is made every year

If you are carrying forward a No Claim Bonus on any vehicle, you can get it transferred to a new vehicle of the same type (four-wheeler to four-wheeler, two-wheeler to two-wheeler).

This way, you can slash between 20% and 50% on the first premium payable (when it is the highest) on your new vehicle.

Example: You buy a new Honda City, costing Rs.7.7 lakhs. In normal circumstances, the Own Damage Premium payable towards its insurance for the first year would be Rs.25,279. However, if you were to transfer the 50% No Claim Bonus (the best case scenario) on your old vehicle to the Honda City, you would pay Rs.12,639 as Own Damage Premium in the first year a 50% saving.

Can my No Claim Bonus be forfeited? If yes, then why?

Your NCB will be forfeited in the following cases only:

  • If the claim is made during a policy period, you will not be eligible for any NCB in the corresponding year
  • If there is a break in the insurance period for more than 90 days, i.e. if you do not insure within 90 days of the date of expiry on your existing policy

Can I transfer the NCB from an old vehicle to a new vehicle?

You can transfer the NCB from your old vehicle to a new one for the same class and type of vehicle. To transfer, keep the following in mind:

  • When you sell your old vehicle, ensure that ownership is transferred and make a photocopy of the new entry in the RC book for insurance purpose
  • Obtain the NCB certificate. Forward a copy of the delivery note to your insurance company and ask for the NCB certificate or holding letter. This letter is valid for three years
  • When you buy a new vehicle, get the NCB transferred to your new motor vehicle insurance policy

    Dear Sir,
    I have BA car policy for Maruti Zen. I am availaing 65% NCB on this policy. I intend to replace this car by Maruti SX4 Zxi. I have taken loan in name of my wife, as I got retired recently, from HDFC bank now and wish to transfer NCB to new car as old car will go in exchange to Maruti showroom.
    Problem is the ownership of Zen in my name and that of booked car in wife’s name. Please guide me to get this benefit.
    Website does not mention this along side 3 points to take care before opting to avail this benefit.
    Kind regards
    PK Trehan
