Free Judgments

Geetu Etc vs Ravinder on 28 July, 2015

1. The present revision petition has been filed by the petitioners

to challenge the correctness and legality of an order dated 30.11.2013 of

learned Principal Judge, Family Court, Dwarka in petition under Section

125 Cr.P.C. whereby they were granted maintenance @ `2,000/- p.m. to

petitioner No.1 and `1,000/- p.m. to petitioner No.2. The petition is

contested by the respondent. I have heard the learned counsel for the

parties and have examined the file.

It is not in dispute that petitioner No.1 was married to

respondent on 24.02.2008. On 19.03.2010, the petitioner No.2 was born

out of this wedlock.
2. During the course of arguments, latest salary slip of the

respondent was obtained. On perusal of the latest salary certificate, it

surfaced that the gross-salary of the petitioner in the month of March,

2015 was `33,680.19/-. After deductions, net salary receivable by him

was `18,685/-. However, all the deductions are not compulsory. Gross

salary as per Form 16 of the respondent was `391,738.28 in the said year.

Apparently, maintenance granted by the learned Presiding Officer is on

the lower side. The respondent volunteered to enhance it to `6,000/- per

month. The petitioners insisted to raise it to `10,000/- per month.
