By now, if you read newspapers or listen to Nepali news, you have heard about Mero Surakshya. It is a comprehensive plan from Mero Surakshya Pvt. Ltd. that helps you ease the pain of a lost or a damaged phone. The best part is that it is pretty affordable. The leaflet from Mero Surakshya says that the plan will cost you only 5% of your phone’s price. But we found the numbers to be somewhere around 7-8 % which is in itself pretty affordable. For example, it only costs around 6000 a year for a plan for Galaxy S9. That’s affordable.
Mero Surakshya offers you protection against six things: fire damage, liquid damage, accidental damage, loss or theft, data loss, and screen damage (which should come under accidental damage. But, anyway) They have described in detail how all these protections work in their website and if you want to know more about what kinds of damages they protect against, click this link.
One key point to note is that they don’t pay the full price of your phone in case of damages and theft. They have different policies for different problems. For example, in case of theft, 50% cost of the device needs to be paid by the customer, 50% will be paid by Mero Surakshya. In case of fire damage, or liquid damage, it is like 80% from Mero Surakshya, and 20% of the customer. And that is an amazing plan if you can show that the damages were really unintentional.
