The Compulsory Insurance Bureau of Azerbaijan (ISB) registered 77,741 contracts of compulsory civil liability insurance for motor vehicles in December 2017, which is 24 percent more than in the same period of 2016, the ISB said Jan. 19.
The premiums collected under those contracts amounted to almost 5.96 million manats (a 19-percent growth for the year).

The premiums collected under those contracts reached around 89.66 million manats.
The ISB includes 16 companies, 13 of which are authorized to sell policies of compulsory civil liability insurance for motor vehicles.
After the Law on Types of Compulsory Insurance came into force in December 2011, the base cost of a motor vehicle compulsory civil liability insurance policy is 50 manats and is applied to the cars with an engine capacity of up to 1,500 cubic centimeters.
As the volume of the engine increases from 1,500 to 5,000 cubic centimeters, coefficients from 1.5 to 5 are added up to the cost. Coefficient 5 is used for cars with an engine capacity of over 5,000 cubic centimeters.
Previously, the insurance premium for all cars was 10 manats.
