Theft (robbery) and Burglary Insurance

A Standard Fire and Special Perils (SFSP) policy does not cover theft. Also, if one has opted for Bharat Laghu Udyam Suraksha (BLUS) or Bharat Sookshma Udyam Suraksha (BSUS), the theft cover is very minimal. Thus, a burglary or theft cover is an important supplemental policy to fire insurance that can safeguard the business from loss brought on by a break-in, housebreaking, or holdup.

Electronic Equipment Insurance

Fire insurance can offer limited protection for the digital or electronic assets of a business. Electronic equipment insurance is a supplemental policy to fire insurance that provides additional coverage to protect various electronic equipment and electrically operated machines. This additional coverage will be helpful for businesses whose daily operations largely rely on electronic devices like computers, servers, MRI equipment, X-ray machines, etc.
