Sub :All India Fire Tariff Revision of Petrochemical Tariff

The Tariff Advisory Committee has revised Petrochemical Tariff. A copy of the revised
tariff is herewith.

The following decisions will apply :

The revised tariff will come into force for all new business and renewals falling on or after
3132001.

Insured can cancel the existing policies (all Fire Policies pertaining to the risk) on prorata
basis and switch over to the new tariff w.e.f. 3132001 as a one time exception.

In case of risks where the aggregate premium of all Fire Policies pertaining to the risk goes
up under the new tariff, such risks can renew the policies at the rates and terms of the old
(existing) tariff for one year.

Risks presently rated under the existing Petrochemical Tariff, which go outside the purview
of the new Petrochemical Tariff in view of the revision will be allowed to continue under
the new tariff if the insured so desire as a one time option. However, once the option is
exercised the risks shall continue to be rated under Petrochemical Tariff and the option to go
outside the purview of Petrochemical Tariff shall not be available to such risks thereafter.

Rates and terms as per the provisions of new tariff can be finalised by the insurers
themselves without any reference to TAC. In other words, no inspections will be carried out
by TAC engineers to fix rates and terms.
