Bombay: After divorce between husband and wife, in most cases the husband has to pay alimony to the wife, but in Maharashtra a case has come to light where a court ordered a wife to pay alimony to her ex-husband. In fact, a case has recently come to light in Nanded, Maharashtra, in which a local court ordered the woman to pay her ex-husband Rs 5,000 a month in alimony. Now this decision has also been upheld by the Bombay High Court.
Given the husband’s poor financial situation, the Supreme Court also ordered the woman’s school to deduct five thousand rupees a month from the woman’s salary and deposit it with the court. This husband and wife divorce took place after 23 years in 2015 and the wife is a university teacher. The husband argued in court that he spent a lot of money tuition for his wife and compromised on many things related to the home. The husband said that he has many health problems, so his health is not good. His wife earns 30,000 rupees a month. So I’m in dire need of maintenance.
The couple married in 1992 and divorced in 2015 after his wife went to court for cruelty. The husband had subsequently applied for alimony of Rs 15,000 per month claiming he had no source of income. The woman’s argument was that the man had a grocery store and he also made money renting his auto rickshaw while she also had to take care of her daughter. The husband’s claim for maintenance should therefore be rejected. But the court dismissed the woman’s claim and ordered her to pay her ex-husband 5,000 rupees in alimony.
