CR-6378-2015 -2-

A perusal of the impugned order dated 27.4.2015 passed by

learned District Judge, Jind, shows that both parties belong to middle class.

Present petitioner is B.A./B.Ed and having two minor children. Respondent-

husband is running a sanitary store at Jind and is an income tax assessee.

Father of the respondent-husband is in COMA and lying admitted in the

hospital.

Considering the facts and circumstances of the case, there is no

ground to hold that respondent-husband is having much more income in

hand and is in position to pay more than ` 7,000/- per month as

maintenance. In the absence of any evidence, there is no ground to modify

the order dated 27.4.2015, passed by learned District Judge, Jind for

enhancement of compensation already granted to petitioner-wife.

Dismissed.
