If you've purchased only a Third-Party Passenger Vehicle Insurance Policy, then own damages and losses won’t be covered for. 

Drunk Driving, or Driving Without a valid License

If during a claim, the driver-owner is found to be without a valid driver’s license or under the influence of alcohol then the claim won’t be approved.

Contributory Negligence

Any damages or losses caused to the vehicle due to contributory negligence won’t be covered. For example, if there are existing floods in the city, and one still drives the vehicle despite being recommended not to. 

Consequential Damages

Any damages or losses that aren’t due to that of an accident, natural calamity or fire can’t be covered for.
