Date of decision: August 21, 2019

Suman Verma …Appellant

Versus

Manoj Kumar …Respondent

CORAM: HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE RAJAN GUPTA
HON’BLE MRS. JUSTICE MANJARI NEHRU KAUL

Present: Mr. Saurabh Bhatia, Advocate for the appellant.

Mr. Rakesh Verma, Advocate for the respondent.

Rajan Gupta, J.(oral)

Present appeal is directed against the order dated 18.02.2016,

passed by the court below, whereby it has directed repayment of the

maintenance received by the appellant-wife.

It appears that an application under Section 24 of the Hindu

Marriage Act was filed by the appellant-wife before the court below. The

court after considering the material on record, was pleased to grant

Rs.4000/- per month as maintenance pendente lite. This order was

challenged by the respondent-husband before this court in Civil Revision

No.5934 of 2013. During the course of hearing of the revision petition, it

came to light that a lumpsum amount had already been paid by the husband

to the wife in proceedings under Section 13-B of the Hindu Marriage Act,

which however, did not culminate into a decree. In view of the lumpsum

amount paid in those proceedings, the maintenance pendente lite was set-

aside. The matter was challenged by the appellant wife in the Supreme

Court but she remained unsuccessful. As a result, the court below directed

the appellant-wife to reimburse the maintenance charges received by her

during the pendency of the case, failing which respondent-husband would

be at liberty to recover the said amount.

Learned counsel are ad idem that the amount can be adjusted in

case the matter is settled by way of payment of permanent alimony.

In view of the aforesaid situation, we do not intend to delve

further in issue. Appeal is hereby disposed of.
