The sum insured for the structure of the house is based on the Reinstatement Value. Quite simply, it would be the reconstruction cost of the house in the event of any loss/damage due to any of the insured events like Fire, Riots, Storm, Flood and so on.

The reconstruction value for the structure is determined by the construction cost. This, however, would not include the cost of Land. The reconstruction cost is based on two parameters which are mentioned below:-
Built Up Area of the House (Square Feet)
Cost of Construction in your area / locality

Burglary and Housebreaking including Larceny and Theft (Section II) - Contents (as defined by Indian Penal Code) You can also insure the contents of your home against loss due to burglary and /or housebreaking or any attempted burglary. Jewellery kept in Locked Safe within the Home premises can also be covered.

Sum Insured for Contents under Section I A:- Fire & Special Perils and Section II:- Burglary & Theft should be the same.

The Sum Insured for Contents / Valuables is based on the market value. Market value would mean the current cost less depreciation, in the event of loss / damage. For jewellery, you would not have to deduct depreciation.
