IN THE HIGH COURT OF PUNJAB AND HARYANA AT
CR No. 7110 of 2017
Date of decision :12.10.2017
Deepak Puri …Petitioner
Vandana Puri …Respondent
CORAM: HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE ANIL KSHETARPAL
Present: Mr. Naveen Batra, Advocate
for the petitioner.
ANIL KSHETARPAL, J. (Oral)
Husband is in revision petition against the order passed by the
learned trial Court fixing the maintenance pendente lite at the rate of Rs.10,000/-
Learned counsel for the petitioner has submitted that on the one
hand, learned trial Court has observed that wife is an income tax payee and on the
other hand, it has been observed that wife is not having any source of income.
Of course, there is some error in the order passed by the Court.
However, as per the assessment year 2015-16 wife was having income of
Rs.2,68,000/- whereas husband was having income of Rs.3,73,141/-. Husband is
liable to maintain his wife. The Court has only awarded maintenance at the rate of
Rs.10,000/- per month. The parties appear to be belonging to middle class
category and Rs.10,000/- is the minimum amount, which can be awarded to the
wife for maintenance.
In the circumstances, I do not find any good ground to interfere with
the order passed by the Court.
Hence, this revision petition is dismissed.
