deposited latest by 20 th January, 2018 by crediting it to the
said account of the respondent.”

After said, husband and other relatives filed
Criminal Application (APPW) No. 35/2018 in Criminal Writ
Petition No.798/2017 for clarification of order dated
11.01.2018. The said application was decided on
31.03.2018. It will be useful to reproduce the said order
hereinbelow :

“The order dated 11 th January, 2018 is clear and requires
no further clarification or elaboration. However, to put it
on record it is reiterated by this order that the rent amount
of Rs.5,000/- per month has been directed to be deposited
from the month of January, 2018 and the mode of deposit
has been fixed to be by way of crediting it directly to the
Saving Account No. 874610110009826 of the respondent
with Bank of India, Kadbi Chowk Branch, Nagpur on or
before 10th day of every month. If there are any arrears
recoverable from the petitioner, the respondent is at liberty
to initiate appropriate proceedings in this matter.”

In the meanwhile, execution proceedings were
filed i.e. Miscellaneous Criminal Application No. 3260/2016.

The learned Judicial Magistrate First Class, Nagpur vide
order dated 03.09.2018 dismissed the execution
proceedings. Against that, the present writ petition is filed.
Notice on this writ petition filed by the wife was issued on
20.11.2019. The counsel for the husband and wife were
heard and the order was passed that the husband shall
deposit Rs.1,90,000/- within a period of 10 days before this
Court without fail.

Thereafter the present applicant is filed for
modification of order dated 20.11.2019 and also seeking
permission to deposit an amount of Rs. 85,000/-. According
to the learned counsel for the husband he was liable to pay
rent from 11.01.2018 as directed in Criminal Writ Petition
No.798/2017. Thus till November, 2019 he was required to
pay respondent at the rate Rs.5,000/- per month for 23
months that comes to Rs.1,15,000/- (Rupees One Lac Fifteen
Thousands only), out of that he has already paid Rs.30,000/-
and therefore he is required to pay only Rs.85,000/-.

The said is vehemently opposed by the learned
counsel for the wife.

Prima facie, it is clear from the judgment passed
by this Court on 11.01.2018 that this Court has not modified
Clause 3 of operative portion of order dated 12.12.2013
passed by learned Judicial Magistrate First Class, Nagpur.
Order dated 11.01.2018 and order dated 21.03.2018 only
show that from January, 2018 husband was required to pay
amount directly in the saving bank account of the wife as
mentioned in those two orders.

Order passed by learned Magistrate on
12.12.2013 does not show that learned Magistrate directed
the husband to pay rent from the date of judgment.
Therefore, husband will be liable to pay the rent at the rate
of Rs.5,000/- per month from the date of the order i.e.
12.12.2013 till 12.12.2019 i.e. for 71 months and rent for
this period at the rate of Rs. 5,000/- will be Rs.3,55,000/-
(Rupees Three Lac Fifty Five Thousands only).

Learned counsel for the wife submitted that the
wife has already received amount of Rs.1,56,000/- after
taking the said into account, the husband’s liability towards
rent is Rs.1,99,000/-. In my view, orders dated 11.01.2018
and 21.03.2018 are very clear therefore I see no reasons to
modify the order dated 20.11.2019.

Mr. Vyas, learned counsel for husband submits
that husband will deposit cheque of Rs.85,000/- before this
Court within three days from today. He sought further four
weeks time to deposit balance amount of Rs.1,14,000/-
before this Court.

Permission is granted to the husband to deposit
cheque of Rs.85,000/- with the Registry of this Court. The
husband is also granted further four weeks time to pay
balance amount of Rs.1,14,000/- (Rupees One Lac Fourteen
Thousands only) towards arrears of rent within a period of
four weeks form today.

After aforesaid amount is deposited to this Court,
the wife is entitled to withdraw the said amount. With these
observations Criminal Application (APPW) No.290/2019 is
disposed of.
