Checklist before buying Life Insurance Policy

What you would like your life insurance policy to achieve?

Ask yourself what it is you want the insurance to do. For example, do you want to have coverage that will:

Pay the outstanding balance owing on a mortgage and other debts?
Offset the loss of your income? For how long?
Contribute to the future education of your children?
A combination of all or part of the above?
Knowing what you would like to accomplish with your life insurance policy will help you determine how much life insurance you need to buy. If you have insurance before then what is the purpose of the new policy? What value will it add to existing policy? Why are you buying the policy?

Who would you like to insure?

Most life insurance companies offer a variety of products to suit your lifestyle and family. You can get a life insurance policy

On your own life, or
You can get one policy for both you and your spouse (called a joint life insurance policy) or
For your child.

Supreme Court bans sun films

The new Supreme Court ruling put a blanket ban on usage of tints or any visual light transmission (VLT) accessory that would reduce occupant visibility from outside. Ruling on a PIL filed by one Avishek Goenka against illegal activities involving cars, the supreme court said that any such accessory except the OEM tints, is against provisions of the CMVR (Central Motor Vehicles Act).

Motorists driving with window tints shall be fined Rs 500, and the constable/officer has the right to remove tints on the spot. The car can be impounded if the owner objects – a dangerous power that is being handed over to the police, who will not have any sympathies for cars with rear defoggers whose wiring is likely to get damaged if the sun film is removed improperly.

Even if the films on the car were legal earlier, they are illegal now.

Gas Cylinder Expiry Date

Do you know that there is an expiry date (physical life) for LPG cylinders? Expired Cylinders are not safe for use and may cause accidents. In this regard, please be cautious at the time of accepting any LPG cylinder from the vendor.

Here is how we can check the expiry of LPG cylinders:
On one of three side stems of the cylinder, the expiry date is coded alpha numerically as follows A or B or C or D and some two digit number following this e.g. D06. 

The alphabets stand for quarters –
1. A for March (First Qtr),
2. B for June (Second Qtr),
3. C for Sept (Third Qtr),
4. D for December (Fourth Qtr). 

The digits stand for the year till it is valid. Hence D06 would mean December qtr of 2006.
Please Return Back the Cylinder that you get with a Expiry Date, they are prone to Leak and other Hazardous accidents 

 

The second example with D13 allows the cylinder to be in use until Dec 2013. 

Kindly pass this to every one and create awareness
