Its time again for the Elephant to Renew its Insurance.
Talked with Bajaj Alianz, the Current Provider which Gave a Quote of 15k Plus. Which is even higher than last year!
In the OCT i had someone call from Bajaj with an Offer of 12k something, the guy seems to have disappeared. I have requested a callback from senior team which they haven't done yet.
HDFC is their usual thing with Dismal IDV of 2.5L.

Another provider is Reliance with a quote of 13k, IDV of 4L and Complimentary RSA.
What do you think fellas?

Also I want to ask, what is the PUC jumble on Insurance Renewal? There is conflicting Info available everywhere.

Ironically, I never used them and when I installed seat covers, I removed them and kept aside.
I Think you have to insert VCD in the Player. Then use Screen Buttons to turn it on.

It means that your 4x4 is actually working. Please don't use it on Paved roads. Its meant for Slush or Gravel/Sand only.
