CORAM: HON’BLE MR.JUSTICE H.S. MADAAN

H.S. MADAAN, J. (Oral)

This revision petition is directed against order dated

08.10.2018, passed by Addl. District Judge, Mansa, vide which, in a

divorce petition filed by petitioner Simarjeet Kaur against her husband

Vijay Kumar, on an application under Section 24 of the Hindu Marriage

Act, 1955, having been moved by her, she has been granted maintenance

pendente lite @ Rs.3000/- per month with Rs. 5000/- as litigation

expenses.

The respondent-husband is aggrieved by the said order,

submitting that the maintenance granted is on the higher side, more

particularly, when the petitioner-wife is highly qualified and is working

as a teacher in a private school, besides giving tuition at home. However,

the trial Court has considered all these aspects observing that the

respondent/husband had failed to substantiate those allegations by

bringing on record any documentary evidence, considering the fact that

respondent/husband is an able-bodied person who can easily earn

Rs.300/- per day i.e. Rs.9000/- per month; 1/3rd of that amount has been

granted to the petitioner/wife as maintenance pendente lite.

The order is well reasoned, based upon proper appraisal of

evidence and correct appreciation of law. There is no illegality or

infirmity therein, which might have called for interference by this Court

while exercising revisional jurisdiction. There being no merit in the

revision petition, the same stands dismissed.
