The overall value of your car depends on the value of its various parts, which decrease with time. This is because the car parts depreciate as the car becomes old. This depreciation is at different rates for each part. 

In case your insured car gets damaged in an accident, and you file for a claim, the insurer will pay you the claim amount after the deduction of the depreciation value. This means you will have to pay the remaining amount for repairs for your car out of your own pocket. In such cases, IFFCO Tokio Zero Dep car insurance covers the depreciation cost for all replaced car parts.
