New Delhi: The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) on Wednesday announced to increase in the premium for third-party motor vehicle insurance of all vehicles from 1st June 2022.

As per the revised notification, the third-party insurance premium for private cars with 1000 cc engine capacity will now be Rs 2094 compared to Rs 2,072 in 2019-20.

At the same time, the premium for private cars of 1000 to 1500 cc engine has now been increased from Rs 3221 to Rs 3416.

However, the government has given relief in the premium of Third Party Vehicle Insurance to private car owners of more than 1500 cc. The government has reduced the premium for cars of this capacity as compared to earlier.
