Ease the Sting of Vector-Borne Diseases With Dengue Cover From Bajaj Finserv

Business Wire India
Vector-borne diseases like dengue and malaria are spread through mosquitoes and affect many people across India every year. As per the reports from the National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme, in 2018, more than 89,974 dengue cases were reported in the country, with 144 deaths. In 2017, the numbers were higher with 1,88,401 dengue cases reported and 325 deaths.

The cost of treatment of dengue could be high, especially because the severe cases can require hospitalization for an extended period. Hence, it’s important to be financially prepared to cover the costs associated with the illness. Bajaj Finserv offers an affordable Dengue Cover at just Rs. 299 per annum which provides coverage up to Rs. 50,000.

Check out the benefits you can get with a dengue insurance policy:

Get coverage for diagnostics and hospitalisation charges
People suffering from dengue usually have a high fever of around 104°F, accompanied by symptoms like severe headaches, nausea, pain at the back of the eyes, rashes as well as muscle and joint pain. Since the symptoms aren’t specific, it's important to clinically diagnose the disease. Dengue serology testing is preferred if the patient has suffered from the symptoms for over a week.

With the Dengue Cover from Bajaj Finserv, you can get coverage for the cost of diagnostic tests before or during hospitalization, medical expenses and more.

Get coverage for doctor’s fees and hospital room rent
The dengue insurance policy also covers your doctor’s fees before, during and after hospitalisation. This is a significant benefit as you may have to make several outpatient appointments over the course of your recovery. Further, if admitted in the hospital, you get up to Rs. 1,000 per day to pay for normal room rent and up to Rs. 2,000 per day if you are in the ICU.

Pay the pre- and post-medication charges with ease
While there isn’t a particular treatment for this vector-borne disease, immediate medical attention reduces the chance of fatalities. Some dengue patients may need blood transfusion for very low platelet count. With health insurance for dengue fever, you can cover the treatment charges and prescribed medicines with ease, whether bought before, during or after hospitalisation.

Further, all other ancillary expenses incurred to treat dengue, before and after hospitalisation, are covered under by dengue insurance policy for up to 15 days.

In a country like India, dengue is said to be a threat all year round due to the tropical weather conditions. To be on guard, avail the 365-day Dengue Cover from Bajaj Finserv at a premium of just Rs. 299. You can apply online easily by filing up the application form on the Bajaj Finserv website and paying the premium in an instant via multiple payment options.

To initiate a claim, all you have to do is send an email or call the toll-free number mentioned in the policy document.

Bajaj Finserv has several other Pocket Insurance products that are affordable, provide maximum coverage and have an easy application process. Check out other products like Kidney Stones Cover, Infection Cover, Road Trip Cover, Trek Cover, Monsoon Cover, Wallet Care and more to find the best insurance policy that benefits you.

Raid to Seize Illegal ISI Helmets at Ghaziabad Factory

Business Wire India
Acting on the Complaint of NGO Utprarit Consumer Foundation, the team of Scientists and Staff raided one factory in Mohan Nagar, Ghaziabad. This Factory was making ISI marked helmets without having a valid License to do so. The manufacturing unit with the name of Agro Products was manufacturing helmets by the brand name Agro in Mohan Nagar and was not having a valid license to do so. It is informed that the validity of their license had expired last year but they were still marking the products as ISI. This is illegal as per the provisions of the BIS Act. 
 
During the Raid, 7 members of Bureau of Indian Standards from Ghaziabad, police and members of NGO Utprarit Consumer Foundation were present as witnesses. Around 500 helmets with ISI mark, shells, cloth stickers, packing boxes, etc. were seized from the site whose custody after sealing was given to the owner Mr Raj Kumar. This will be the responsibility of the owner to keep the seal intact till the orders of the honorable court. 
 
Here it may not be out of place to mention that due to Poor quality of Helmets many lives are being lost in India on Roads due to accidents. Poor quality helmets do not provide protection to riders and due to the same, the Government is taking a very serious view of the matter and is planning to put the helmets in the compulsory list for ISI. Once put in the compulsory list for obtaining ISI certification, no manufacturer will be able to sell NON ISI certified helmets and many precious lives could be saved.
 
Mr. Sandeep Sood from NGO Utprarit consumer foundation also stated that there are a lot of such manufacturers who are misusing the ISI certification like this and their NGO is always ready to fight for the protection of consumers from such kind of unlawful and illegal Acts. He also stated that they have already given similar complaints BIS officials in Delhi and Faridabad and shortly the expect similar actions from Faridabad and Delhi officials.
