We have been the preferred choice for numerous home makers, providing them safety and quality products for decades. On the occasion of Home Safety Day, we are glad to tie-up with Liberty General Insurance Co Ltd and provide an additional layer of home safety to our customers as well as a holistic and well-rounded bundle of protection. With this collaboration, the business expects to increase their sales by 30% of the superior safety strength locks of Godrej and impact over 50,000 households in India.”
On the collaboration, Roopam Asthana, CEO & Whole Time Director, Liberty General Insurance Co Ltd said, “In today’s world full of uncertainties, an insurance cover has assumed far greater significance than ever before. With this partnership we at Liberty General Insurance aim to reduce any insecurity a customer might have about safeguarding their homes from an unfortunate burglary. We at Liberty General Insurance believe that progress happens when people feel secure and through our partnership with Godrej Locks we aim to provide protection for the unexpected, delivered with care."
Godrej Locks launched Home Safety Day in 2017 to make citizens conscious of creating safer homes and since then the company has been introducing new ways to create awareness about home safety among the citizens of our country. According to a Godrej Locks survey that was launched last year, 85% of cops agree that there is a need to raise awareness about better home safety technology. Acknowledging the issue, Godrej Locks partnered with Liberty to incentivize customers who take proactive steps towards making their homes safer. Currently a similar format is exercised by insurance companies for health insurance, whereas home insurance has never been based on the initiatives taken by a home-owner to make his home a safer place.
The insurance offered by Godrej Locks and Liberty can be voluntarily availed based on the customer’s prerogative & interest. In case any customer wishes to extend the policy, they can directly contact Liberty General Insurance Co Ltd. The collaboration between Godrej Locks and Liberty Insurance will be effective from 15th November 2021 until 14th November 2022.
