Electrical gadgets such as computers and laptops are vital for running day-to-day operations. The electronic items' coverage plays an important role in providing coverage against a risk incurred while the equipment had been in use or had been kept aside idle and sometimes even during a regular maintenance activity.
Electronics insurance coverage falls under technical plans that are collectively grouped under property insurance. Protection is guaranteed against unforeseen property damage caused by the destruction, loss, or damage to insured property against risks to items such as machines and electronic equipment. It must be highlighted that under technical insurance plans, all the exclusions are mentioned openly instead of the standard practice of pointing out the risks that it covers.
Under the aegis of electronics insurance, varied components of electronic equipment such as a computer are covered. Similarly, insurance is offered for newly installed electronic components as well, for which coverage must be changed to reflect new features under the extension of risks.
For the most part, a loss on account of an operator’s mistake or sheer negligence as well as external factors such as theft or intrusions are covered. However, policies for electronic equipment do not cover risks related to consumable goods, working materials, or operating supply issues. The same holds for structures and machinery that generate, distribute, or convert electrical energy into mechanical power as well as operational wear and tear, natural calamities like earthquakes and wars, or civil unrest.
Items such as digital planners, calculators, picture copiers, scanners, printers, and other equipment are all covered by the electronic stationary insurance offered by Bajaj Markets.
Whenever electronic equipment covered by electronic policy malfunctions for any reason that is not expressly excluded, the policy will shield it from sudden and unforeseen physical damage.
