Husband can also invoke provision for maintenance/ permanent alimony under Hindu Marriage Act: Bombay High Court

The Bombay High Court recently declined to interfere with a Nanded court's orders directing a school teacher to pay interim maintenance to her ex-husband, who claimed to have no sources of income.

Single-judge Justice Bharati Dangre held that the provisions relating to maintenance and permanent alimony under the Hindu Marriage Act can be invoked by the needy spouse which can also be the husband.

"The provision of maintenance / permanent alimony being a beneficial provision for the indigent spouse, the said section can be invoked by either of the spouse, where a decree of any kind governed by Sections 9 to 13 has been passed and marriage tie is broken, disrupted or adversely affected by such decree of the court." -Bombay High Court
