No Multiple Maintenance. Maintenance to be either u/s 125 or PWDV

IN THE HIGH COURT OF PUNJAB AND HARYANA AT CHANDIGARH

CR NO.4813 OF 2009 (OM)

DECIDED ON : 25.08.2009

Raman Ahuja @ Banti …Petitioner

versus

Vandana …Respondent

CORAM : HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE AJAY TEWARI

Present : Mr. Karan Vir Nanda,

Advocate for the petitioner.

AJAY TEWARI, J. (ORAL)

This petition has been filed against the award of maintenance pendente lite of Rs.3,000/- per month.

The only prayer made by the learned counsel for the petitioner is that the petitioner is already paying maintenance under Section 125 Cr.PC and Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005.

So, the petitioner should not have to pay maintenance on independent accounts.

In fact what the learned counsel for the petitioner is praying for is really the law.

Learned counsel further relied upon the judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court titled as Sudeep Chaudhary versus Radha Chaudhary 1999 AIR (SC) 536.

Consequently, this petition is dismissed with the clarification that the amount awarded by the impugned order would be set off against the maintenance being paid by the petitioner to the respondent under other proceedings.
