HDFC ERGO Industrial All Risk Insurance Policy

Industrial All Risk Insurance Policy

This is a Comprehensive Package Policy which provides cover against unforeseen circumstances including accidental damage to the property, which a large industry may face during its operation.

Minor accidents and breakdowns (or theft) may lead to major shutdown or huge expenses. Electronic equipment and machineries are expensive and often involve large sums invested in and across vast areas. Any major shutdown may lead to potential loss of Market Share and this would have long term percussions.

In such a scenario the all encompassing cover provided by HDFC ERGO's Industrial All Risk Insurance, gives your industry the reassurance it needs. A timely help by paying claim would help to resume business at the earliest.
