Notwithstanding anything contained in section 306 of the Indian Succession Act, 1925 (39 of 1925.) the death of a person in whose favour a certificate of insurance had been issued, if it occurs after the happening of an event which has given rise to a claim under the provisions of this Chapter, shall not be a bar to the survival of any cause of action arising out of the said event against his estate or against the insurer.
