IN THE HIGH COURT FOR THE STATES OF PUNJAB AND
HARYANA AT CHANDIGARH
C.R. No.3785 of 2019
Date of Decision.31.05.2019
CORAM:HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE AMIT RAWAL
Present:Mr. Tushar Gautam, Advocate
for the petitioner.
AMIT RAWAL J. (ORAL)
The contention of the petitioner is that maintenance
pendente lite awarded in divorce petition filed by him to the tune of
`5000/- per month is on the higher side, as the respondent-wife is
living in the same house and he has to look after two children. The
respondent-wife is engaged in stitching and milk vending work and
earning more than `15,000/- per month.
I am afraid aforementioned argument would not be
sustainable, as no proof of such income has been placed on record.
There is no bar for the wife to claim maintenance even if she is
sharing the same roof with the husband. This is minimum amount of
maintenance pendente lite by assessing the income of the petitioner as
`35,000/- to `40,000/- per month
I do not find any illegality and infirmity in the order
under challenge. No ground for interference is made out. Resultantly,
the revision petition is dismissed.
