  1. “Increased Value” insurance
  • This insurance is on increased value by reason of market value of the goods at destination on the date of landing, being higher than the CIF and Duty value of the cargo and is subject to the same clauses and conditions as the insurance on CIF value of the cargo, and to pay 75% of the actual loss suffered in the market or realisable value of cargo.
  • This is not a valued policy as defined in the Marine Insurance Act.
  • where the total sum insured under the CIF value insurance policy, Duty policy and all policies for Increased Values is less than the market or realis able value of the cargo in good condition at destination, the assured shall be considered to be his own insurer to the extent of such shortfall in the sum insured.
  • The insurance shall not be for an agreed value but shall be for an amount not exceeding the actual difference between the market valueat destination on the date of arrival of the goods in India, and the total of CIF value plus Duty, subject to establishment of a higher market value or controlled price as notified by appropriate statutory authority.
  • The assured is required to bear 25% of the claim amount payable under this component of the policy.
  • Increased Value insurance shall not be granted for more than 100% of the CIF insurance, except in exceptional circumstances.
  • The rate of premium shall be 100% of the normal rate applicable to CIF insurance.
  1. When the terms of sale are FOB, the insurance is arranged by the buyer overseas for his own account and benefit. Risk under the buyer’s policy commences on loading of the cargo on the overseas vessel, because it is at that juncture of transit that risk passes from the seller to the buyer.
  2. The seller or exporter, therefore, has to bear the risk of loss or damage to his goods from the time they leave his warehouse till such goods are loaded on the overseas vessel (Insurance of cargo sold on FOB terms of sale)
  3. Shut-out cargo: Shut-out cargo relates to goods which arrive too late for a vessel at a loading port or else the goods are not loaded because the vessel has a full cargo load.
  4. Goods which could not be loaded on the designated vessel for some reason or other and are therefore detained at the port warehouse or docks or shut-out mid-stream due to strike or lock-out, require further extension of cover at additional premium.( Shut-out cargo)
  5. When goods are returned to shipper’s warehouse involving Rail/Road transit, appropriate Inland Transit cover may be granted for the return journey at additional premium.( Shut-out cargo)
  6. Exports incentives insurance: Export Incentives policy provides for cover which is equivalent to:

FOB value + Export incentives +10%.

  1. If the loss occurs before shipment, the insurance company will pay loss on proportion of invoice value (Exports incentives insurance)
  2. Sellers’ interest contingency insurance: Sellers under FOB and C&F contracts may effect a contingency insurance to cover their interest, if the consignee refuses damaged goods or is unable to take delivery by paying for the goods because of insolvency.
  3. One method of covering these contingent risks is for the seller to effect a special contingency insurance called “Sellers’ Interest Contingency Insurance”, to cover all his FOB and C&F shipments.
  • If the rejection of the shipping documents or of the goods is valid, the risk and ownership revert to the seller and he has to make alternative arrangements for disposing of the goods.
  • If, however, such goods are lost or damaged, the situation is much worse for the seller – unless he has made provision for such contingency –because he will have the double handicap of an uninsured loss to unwanted goods.(Sellers’ Interest Contingency Insurance)
