We have periodically carried stories on non-traditional uses of mobiles. Here is one about buying accident insurance that are bought and paid for through the mobiles.
The accident insurance cover package premiums are priced between five and 20 rupees which can be paid at any Dialog reload centre in Sri Lanka that entitles the connection holder up to 50,000 rupees worth of claims.
The accident cover targets the population who does not have comprehensive knowledge of insurance and low-income families.
Customers can apply for the ‘eZ insurance’ cover at the time of a reload and the cover expires when the credit of the reload finishes.
“eZ insurance is a manifestation of the deployment of advanced electronic commerce infrastructure towards enhancing the affordability and availability of a product,” Hans Wijayasuriya, CEO Dialog Telekom told reporters.
