The official said most of the pool amount will be contributed by the national reinsurer General Insurance Corporation of India (GIC Re) and all other multi-line non-life insurers will also contribute to the pool corpus.

Any claims will be paid from the pool.

This will be the third insurance pool in India after terrorism and nuclear insurance pools.
