Hey Sam,

Policy premium is linked to expected claims. As a claim expert I can tell you that I don't see many claims beyond 3 lakhs. So 10-20 lakh or even 1 crore policy is an overkill.

There is no catch in the 1 crore policies. Insurance companies are trying to make a few thousand premium more from customers for a higher cover which mostly they won't be claiming.

It is the same logic that goes in top-up policies of 40-50 lakhs with 5-10 lakh deductible because the possibility of claim is so so low.
