Husband entitled to get maintenance: Allahabad HC

LUCKNOW: A husband, unable to support himself, is entitled to get maintenance from his earning wife, the Allahabad High Court has ruled.

On a petition filed by one Santosh Kumar Gupta seeking maintenance from his working wife on the ground that his income was too meager to enable him to maintain himself, the Lucknow Bench of the Court recently ruled that the provision of interim maintenance during proceedings of the matrimonial disputes was applicable to both the spouses.

The single-judge Bench headed by Justice D P Singh directed the wife to pay Rs 2,000 per month to Kumar, an employee in the state owned Uptron Corporation, which had been declared a sick unit following which the petitioner was getting only Rs 1,000 per month.

His wife, working in a bank, got a salary of Rs 13,000 per month, had filed the divorce petition against him in a family court.

The husband also filed an application before the court seeking direction to the wife to pay him maintenance and litigation expenses. The family court, however, rejected the husabnd’s application.
