THE HIGH COURT OF MADHYA PRADESH
(AMAR JATAV Vs LAXMI @ NEETU JATAV)
Jabalpur, Dated : 06-03-2018
Shri Ramanath Dwivedi,Advocate for petitioner.
Indeed it is true that in the present case the application was filed
by the wife under Sections 24 26 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955
(hereafter shall be referred to as the ”Act”) seeking interim
maintenance to herself as well as to her minor child. The Court below
rejected the said application for grant of maintenance pendente lite to
the wife but awarded interim maintenance of Rs.1500/- per month to
the minor child under Section 26 of the Act. In my considered opinion,
as per Section 26 of the Act, the said maintenance can be allowed to
the minor child for maintaining himself and for the future expenses
regarding education and other heads. In that view of the matter,
interference in exercise of the power under Article 227 of the
Constitution of India is not warranted.
Accordingly, this petition stands dismissed in limine.
