The petitioner had explained that the jurisdiction for maintenance is under Section 125 of the CrPC, the Hindu Marriage Law and the DV Law etc. and all these matters should be reconciled. Because of all of these provisions, many jurisdictions are used by the parties. Sometimes even contradictory orders are given. A chamber led by Chief Justice UU Lalit of the Supreme Court said the matter had already been considered by the Supreme Court and the decision had been made by a chamber headed by then-Judge Indu Malhotra. It has been decided that a woman receiving alimony under any law will not receive additional alimony under any other forum.
