Thus, renewal of an insurance policy means continuing the coverage of the policy for an additional tenure by paying the required renewal premium to the insurance company.
Renewal of an insurance policy should be done within the policy expiry date (also called the policy due date). If it is done within the due date, the policy continues without a break in coverage.
If the insurance policy is not renewed within the due date, the policy cover would lapse as soon as the due date is over. When the policy lapses, the cover stops. If any claim is made in a lapsed policy, it is rejected as the coverage under the policy has stopped due to non-renewal.

If any important information, which affects the risk covered under the policy, is hidden or lied about, the principle of utmost good faith is breached. In such cases, the insurance contract becomes void and the insurance company has the right to reject the claim under the policy.
