Write short notes on the following : 
Principle of indemnity.

Verified by Toppr

All the fire and marine insurance contracts are contracts of indemnity. The principle of indemnity states that the insured must be compensated for any loss or damage cause to the goods insured by the insurer. This loss has to be measured in terms of money. According to this principle, the insurer must put the insured in the same position in which he was before the loss or damage occurred. It is not applicable to the life insurance contracts.
