to hand over bank draft in the name of the respondent to the

tune of Rs.15,000/- towards litigation/travelling expenses before

the Mediator on 10.03.2015 along with demand draft of upto

date arrears of maintenance.

The aforesaid order was not complied with by the

petitioner and the said fact was also noticed by this Court vide

order dated 24.04.2017.

Concededly, the amount has not been paid to the

respondent and mediation has failed. Even otherwise, the Court

below has noticed that the petitioner was serving as a Class-IV

employee in MCD (Municipal Corporation, Delhi). His mother is

also serving as a regular employee in the aforesaid corporation.

Grant of interim maintenance to the tune of Rs.3000/- per month

cannot be held to be on higher side. Moreover, the petitioner

has not complied with the order dated 09.02.2015 till date.

In view of above, no indulgence can be granted in

this revision petition.

The same is accordingly, dismissed.
