The earthquake in India serves as a timely reminder that tourist need compressive travel insurance
Tourists planning to visit India have been reminded how vital good
travel insurance cover is after a 5.2-magnitude earthquake shook the Indian capital
The quake caused more than 10 seconds of tremors as it hit the state of Haryana just outside New Delhi, the US Geological Survey said.
There were no immediate reports of either damage or injury in the city, although there were reports of panicking people running out into the streets .
The epicentre of the quake was identified by the Indian Meteorological Department as Bahadurgarh, a town on the border between New Delhi and Haryana, north-east of the capital.
New Delhi, which is home to more than 16 million people, sits near two faults and just two weeks ago underwent its first citywide earthquake drill to prepare civil servants and hospital services for emergencies.
