Section 184 in The Indian Succession Act, 1925
184. Person deriving benefit indirectly not put to election.- A person taking no benefit directly under a will, but deriving a benefit under it indirectly, is not put to his election. Illustration The lands of Sultanpur are settled upon C for life, and after his death upon D, his only child. A bequeaths the lands of Sultanpur to B, and 1, 000 rupees to C. C dies intestate shortly after the testator, and without having made any election. D takes out administration to C, and as administrator elects on behalf of C' s estate to take under the will. In that capacity he receives the legacy of 1, 000 rupees and accounts to B for the rents of the lands of Sultanpur which accrued after the death of the testator and before the death of C. In his individual character he retains the lands of Sultanpur in opposition to the will.
