The owner of the vehicle paid premium for insurance for third party also on 23.01.2008 at 3.30. P.M.
Insurance company issued a policy by mentioning the coverage starts from 00.00hrs(midnight 12 A.M) of 24.01.200812 A.M.

But the vehicle met with an accident on 23.01.2008 at about 08.00 P.M

If it is renewal premium, the policy can be implemented.

If the Polciy is not a renewal of previous Policy or the previous Policy renewed with break, then the Ins. Co. rightly mentioned inceptioned time of covering risk and it is settled law that if starting time for covering the risk is mentioned on the Polciy, every risk cover shall start from the said time.


Well if the Policy was renewed in advance and the Ins. Co. mentioned the time for inception of Policy, then Ins. CO. can not deny its liablity because in case of time renewal, the fresh Polciy is in continuty of previous Policy

What proof does the insured have that he paid the premium at 3.30 PM. If he paid it by cash, will the insurance agent testify to it? I doubt so. Mr Bhatia is right to state that when time is mentioned the cover starts from that point. It is a close proximity case and the company will appoint an investigator. My experience says that the policy was taken after the accident occured.
