This insurance cover has several features and benefits. In the event of a person’s demise due to an accident on a Mumbai local train, the nominees can get up to Rs. 1 lakh. Also, if the insured passenger suffers a disability due to injuries sustained on a Mumbai local train, he/she is covered against loss of income, with Rs. 2000 per week during the policy period. Local train travellers above 18 years of age and below 70 years are eligible for this insurance cover.
