The Indian Railways on Thursday launched an insurance scheme for passengers travelling on e-ticket, and a facility to book retiring rooms on hourly basis at stations.
Passengers with confirmed or RAC ticket, booked through the IRCTC website, will need to pay 92 paise as premium to get insurance coverage of up to Rs. 10 lakh in case of train accidents and other untoward incidents, including terrorist attack, dacoity, rioting, shooting or arson.
A passenger will be provided Rs. 10 lakh in case of death or permanent total disability and Rs. 7.5 lakh for
permanent partial disability.
For hospital expenses, the insurance coverage will be up to Rs. 2 lakh.
In addition, Rs. 10,000 will be provided for transportation of mortal remains. There will be no refund of the premium in case of ticket cancellation, the Indian Railways said in a statement.
The Indian Railways have roped in Shriram General Insurance Company, ICICI Lombard and Royal Sundaram General Insurance for providing the cover.
The compensation claim has to be made within four months of the incident.
The insurance company is required to process the claim within 15 days of receipt of the required documents, the statement said.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
