As per the release, Acko will undertake the risk and claim settlement for a daily GPA and GMC cover offered to the glowing delivery partners, who will receive an insurance cover benefit for eventualities like death and disability for Rs 7.5 lakh each.
There is also a loan protection cover of Rs 50,000 and a child education cover of Rs 20,000 for the delivery partners' family in case of death or total disability, it said.
