Get free accidental insurance worth Rs 5 lakh! Good news for Vaishno Devi pilgrims
The SMVDSB has increased the accident cover amount to Rs 5 lakh from existing Rs 3 lakh for pilgrims aged five years and above.
If you have planned to visit Vaishno Devi shrine, then there is a good news for you. The Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board (SMVDSB) will now be giving you a Rs 5 lakh free accident insurance cover besides free treatment to trauma victims.
The SMVDSB has increased the accident cover amount to Rs 5 lakh from existing Rs 3 lakh for pilgrims aged five years and above and Rs 3 lakh for pilgrims below five years of age up from Rs one lakh at present.
However, a yatri can avail the insurance benefits only when he/she collects the yatra slip and commences the journey. The insurance premium is borne by the board.
The board has also approved additional life insurance cover of Rs five lakh to pilgrims who avail the service of the upcoming passenger ropeway between Bhawan and Bhairon Ghati.
