About Policy

The Directors and Officers Liability Policy covers the legal liability including the costs to defend any civil and / or criminal action against the Directors and / or Officers holding a responsible position in an organisation for any wrongful act, error or omission committed by them in course of their discharge of duties, in running the operations of the company and any other acts for and /or on behalf of the company.

This policy consists of two sections as follow:

Section 1: Company Reimbursement Section

  1. This section relates to the insurance cover of the company itself
  2. Covers the obligations of the company (as per Articles of Association) to indemnify its Director/ Officer to defend against any civil/ criminal action)
  3. Reimbursement is limited to only the legal costs expended and that too, if the action is successfully defended by the Director/ Officer.

Section 2: Directors and Officers

  1. This section relates to the insurance cover of the Director/ Officer
  2. If action against the Director/ Officer is successful, then he is on his own and is exposed to legal costs as well as the damages awarded against him by the Courts. The employer company in such a situation will not indemnify him and this section comes into operation, provided the Director/ Officer has not acted in a deliberately dishonest manner.
