Here is a shocking news:
Husband to pay 60% of salary as maintenance
A city court has ordered a man to pay maintenance of more than half of his monthly salary to his wife after divorce.
Manoj Rathi, who earns Rs 2,000 a month, was asked by Judge Vineeta Goyal to give his wife Rs 1,200 for the maintenance of their child after divorce on July 11.
Ironically, the wife, Nalini, earns Rs 9,000 per month, which is almost five times her husband’s salary.
Either the details are incorrect or it is miscarriage of justice. According to HMA 25 under which the judgment is done, either party husband or wife can claim maintenance from the other party after divorce.
See here for more details on another case and clause 25 of HMA which gives maintenance / permanent alimony after divorce.
