3 In proceedings under Sectionsection 27 of the Special

SectionMarriage Act, 1954 (Act) initiated by the petitioner – husband for

divorce, the trial Court has granted maintenance pendent lite of

Rs. 8,000/- to the respondent – wife.

4 It is not in dispute that the petitioner is a teacher and

at the relevant time was earning monthly salary of Rs. 43,000/-.

5 The respondent – wife has to maintain herself and two

children from the wedlock who are aged 16 and 9 years.

6 The learned trial Court was pleased to grant

maintenance pendent lite under Sectionsection 36 of the Act on the

premise that the petitioner did not substantiate the contention that

the wife is receiving income of Rs. 40,000/- from one general

store. Shri V.K. Paliwal, the learned counsel for the petitioner

would submit that there is documentary evidence on record to

show that the wife has let out a residential house and is receiving

Rs. 3,000/- as licence fees. The submission is seriously disputed.

Be that as it may, even if it is assumed arguendo, that the

respondent wife is earning Rs. 3,000/- from some property, I do

not find that the order impugned is in any manner infirm.

7 The scope of Sectionsection 36 of the Act is limited. The

Court is not expected to conduct a mini trial. Suffice it, if the

Court is prima facie satisfied that the wife is not in a position to

maintain herself or the children. Considering the material on

record, the finding of the trial Court that the wife is not in a

position to maintain herself, since she concededly is not employed,

is unexceptionable. If at all, the maintenance granted is most

conservative considering that the monthly income of the petitioner

is Rs. 43,000/- and all that is granted to the respondent who has

two children to support is Rs. 8,000/- per month.

I do not see any reason to interfere in writ jurisdiction.

The petition is dismissed.
