Judgments of Supreme Court of India and High Courts

Ranjit Kaur vs Gurmail Singh on 23 August, 2018

218 FAO-M-134-2009 with CMM-73-2009


Present: Ms. Harpreet Kaur Arora, Advocate, for
Mr. R.V.S. Chugh, Advocate, for the appellant-wife.

Mr. Pardeep Kumar, Advocate, for
Mr. A.S. Cheema, Advocate, for the respondent-husband.


The appellant-wife while filing this appeal in the year 2009, has

also filed an application under Section 24 of the Hindu Marriage Act. The

respondent-husband has not filed reply to the application till date.

In view of said circumstances, we have taken up the application

under Section 24 of the Hindu Marriage Act for consideration wherein it is

pleaded that the appellant-wife is unemployed and dependent upon her

parents whereas the respondent-husband is a resourceful person having 9/40

share in 298 kanal 6 marlas of land besides having 1/4 th share in 160 kanals

of land situated in village Jatana Kalan.

As no material has been brought on record indicating the exact

income of the respondent-husband, it is presumed that the respondent-

husband is an able bodied person and capable of earning. He can be

presumed to be earning sufficient amount for his survival. Considering that

he is earning equivalent to a labourer, earning sum of Rs.300/- to 400/- per

day, his income would be around Rs.10,000/- to Rs.12,000/- per month.

We deem it appropriate to grant maintenance pendente lite at

the rate of Rs.2000/- per month to the appellant-wife, with effect from the

date of application i.e. May, 2009.
