Judgments of Supreme Court of India and High Courts

Rishu Garg vs Meenu Rani on 10 May, 2018

CR No.1758 of 2017 1


CR No.1758 of 2017
Date of Decision : 10.05.2018

Rishu Garg

Meenu Rani
…… Respondent


Present: Mr.Harsh Garg, Advocate for the petitioner.
Ms. Monika Sharma, Advocate for the respondent.


The petitioner-husband has filed this petition assailing the

order dated 3.2.2017, rendered by the Additional District Judge, Patiala,

vide which, a sum of Rs.3,500/- per month, were awarded, as

maintenance pendente lite, to the respondent-wife.

A bare analysis of the impugned order reveals that nothing

was brought on record by the petitioner to show that the respondent was

either gainfully employed or had any independent source of income. It is

not the case of the petitioner either that she own or possess any movable

or immovable property. Concededly, the respondent was living

separately. No doubt, nothing was placed on record to show even the

earnings of the husband, but, as he was an able bodied person, and under

obligation to maintain his wife, the Court awarded a sum of Rs.3,500/-

per month.

For, the respondent even to survive and maintain herself

would require the amount that has been awarded, no ground is made out

to interfere with the impugned order dated 3.2.2017. Even otherwise,

learned counsel for the respondents submits that the petition filed by the

husband has since been allowed and the marriage between the parties has

since been annulled and declared a nullity.

No ground is made out to interfere in exercise of revisional

jurisdiction under Article 227 of the Constitution of India. The petition is

accordingly, dismissed.
