Kolkata: Mobile handset maker Nokia India has tied up with public insurer New India Assurance for extending insurance cover for its entire range of phones starting from entry level to high-end smartphones.
"We have tied up New India Assurance for providing insurance cover for the entire range of Nokia handsets. Initially, the scheme will start in West Bengal and then be rolled out in other parts of the country," Kislay Kumar, general manager (East) of Nokia told reporters here today.
Kumar said the cost of the insurance cover would be 1.25 percent of the handset cost, or Rs 50, whichever was higher.
Initially, the insurance cover would be provided for phones purchased from Nokia Priority Dealers. Eventually, all other multi-brand retail outlets would be covered, he added.
