2. A policy of life insurance may be called in question at any time within three years from the date of issuance of the policy or the date of commencement of risk or the date of revival of the policy or the date of the rider to the policy, whichever is later, on the ground of fraud:
Provided that the insurer shall have to communicate in writing to the insured or the legal representatives of nominees or assignees of the insured the grounds and materials on which such decision is based.
Explanation I — For the purposes of this sub-section, the expression “fraud” means any of the following acts committed by the insured or by his agent, with the intent to deceive the insurer or to induce the insurer to issue a life insurance policy:
a. the suggestion, as a fact of that which is not true and which the insured does not believe to be true;
b. the active concealment of a fact by the insured having knowledge or belief of the fact;
c. any other act fitted to deceive; and
d. any such act or omission as the law specially declares to be fraudulent.
Explanation II — Mere silence as to facts likely to affect the assessment of the risk by the insurer is not fraud, unless the circumstances of the case are such that regard being had to them, it is the duty of the insured or his agent, keeping silence to speak, or unless his silence is, in itself, equivalent to speak.
3. Notwithstanding anything contained in sub-section (2), no insurer shall repudiate a life insurance policy on the ground of fraud if the insured can prove that the mis-statement of or suppression of a material fact was true to the best of his knowledge and belief or that there was no deliberate intention to suppress the fact or that such mis-statement of or suppression of a material fact are within the knowledge of the insurer:

5.
