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.

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.
