The following are few simple tips:

01) Check with your LPG distributor on the requisites for a valid insurance claim.

02)Use only Original accessories which are ISI approved.

03)Request your dealer to do the maintenance check every year.

04)Preserve the maintenance check receipt.

05)In case of death due to explosion of gas cylinder, the victim’s family has to appeal in the court demanding compensation.

06)Insurance agents said it is very easy to get the claim — informs cops and gas agency, wait for survey by insurance officials and soon you will get the claim amount.

We Indian citizens have to create awareness amongst ourselves. No gas company or insurance company will create awareness. The main challenge in claiming the insurance amount is that the evidence has to be preserved till the survey by insurance officials. In majority of the households, the scene of accident is immediately cleaned up, so that the routine life can go on.
