No. And for once you will be rewarded for watching advertisements. After a call comes to an end, or an SMS is received, you will see all the exciting offers right there in your hand. Simply touch the phone screen or any of the buttons to remove the ad immediately. SureBüddyTM  is also optimised to consume very little battery life.
All the costs are paid for by the advertisers. So you never pay SureBüddyTM. Just keep watching the advertisements every month and SureBüddyTM costs you nothing.

You have to watch a minimum number of advertisements every month in order to qualify for insurance. If your phone activity is too low, you will also see advertisements when you screen-lock your phone - just another way we assist to enjoy your insurance for free.
We have optimised the app so that it does not use much data. It will also download over a Wi-Fi connection when possible.

You will see the advertisements on your screen once you finish a call, or when you receive an SMS or when you fall behind on the required views to enjoy your free cover, when you screen-lock your phone.  You can open the app every so often to confirm your ad views for a month.
You can go to any internet café, or any location with free Wi-Fi.  To claim go to or e-mail us on with your Aadhaar policy number, member number as indicated on your "Confirmation of Insurance" Certificate.  You received the "Confirmation of Insurance" Certificate the first time that you registered as a Büddy.
