Pakistan Railways has recently increased the insurance coverage for its passengers, raising the amount from Rs1.5 million to Rs2.5 million.

The legal beneficiaries of a passenger who perished in a train accident would receive a compensation of Rs2.5 million.

In the event of a disability, the insurance policy will provide coverage up to a sum of Rs0.3 million.

The agreement between Pakistan Railways and State Life Insurance Corporation of Pakistan was executed to modify the insurance coverage in the event of casualties and disabilities.
