Insurance policies don’t cover instances where natural calamities have been the reason. This would be an added problem to the people of Chennai who own any vehicle. The recent downpour and water logging in the city of Chennai caused a lot of cars to get submerged underwater.
This would cause the engine and the interiors of the vehicles to get damaged. If not repaired and looked into correctly, repairing the engine would become a costly affair.
Since insurance companies don’t cover expenses in this situation, Maruti has offered discounts on it’s services. Maruti estimates that there are close to 4000 cars in Chennai that require immediate attention. They have ordered extra spare parts and have called technician from other parts of the country to come help as the current workload would require some assistance. They have also offered schemes and discounts for people who want to sell/purchase new cars through it’s true value outlets.
This is a great initiative by Maruti and would help to increase the brand value and company image.
