Maintenance can be granted considering professional potential and earning ability of husband 17.10.2017 DNA: Money
In a significant order, the Bombay High court, while rejecting a challenge to the grant of interim maintenance to a woman by her estranged husband, noted that 'professional potentiality' and 'ability to earn' of a man needs to be taken into account while deciding the claim. The estranged husband was out of a job when maintenance was granted by a family court, and hence, he had challenged the order in the High Court. Justice Dr Shalini Phansalkar Joshi rejected the plea filed by the estranged husband against an order directing him to pay Rs 30,000 per month to the woman. It said, "In the instant case, if one has regard to the rich experience the petitioner is having in his job, his potentiality, his present status as Member of John Maxwell Team (a group of certified coaches, trainers, speakers, mentors, and professionals), then it follows that at present also he must be earning substantial sum." It added, "Whereas wife is not having any source of income and now she also cannot support herself when the job ...

Misuse of dowry laws takes new turn 1.10.2017 DNA: Mumbai
It is not uncommon for women to accuse their husbands of cruelty, while filing for divorce. In fact, the misuse of dowry laws is so common that a few years ago, the Supreme Court (SC) issued a set of guidelines to be complied with before arresting anyone in cases carrying a prison term of seven years or less. Instead of helping the matters, however, this led to the emergence of a disturbing trend. It is being seen that to bypass the conditions of the arrest, the women are now using the provisions under Sections 354 (molestation), 376 (rape), and 377 (unnatural sex) of the Indian penal Code (IPC) to "strengthen" their dowry case and reach a speedy settlement. According to criminal lawyer Tanveer Ahmed Mir, this trend has emerged after the Arnesh Kumar judgment, under which these guidelines were passed. In the July 2, 2014 judgment, the SC had observed: "Section 498 A (anti-dowry act) was introduced with avowed object to combat the menace of harassment to a woman at the hands of her husband and his ...

Court rejects Peter Mukerjea's plea 23.9.2017 DNA: Money
The Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on Friday, for the second time, rejected the application filed by accused Peter Mukerjea, husband of accused Indrani Mukerjea, in which he had pleaded the court to direct the police to produce the case diary. The application was rejected on the grounds that the defence's plea is a futile exercise and that the diary can in no way be termed as "previous statement of the witnesses" as claimed by the defence. The court held that the case diary, which the defence is seeking, is of the offence which was registered against the accused-turned-approver, Syamwar Rai, under the Indian Arms Act, where he is still an accused. The court was hearing the application afresh after the Bombay High Court directed the trial court to do so. The CBI raised its objection on the demand. "The maintenance of a weekly or monthly diary is not mandatory for police officials and the case diary cannot be used as evidence. The sole purpose of the application is to delay the trial," ...

HC directs issue of passport to girl with stepfather's name 16.9.2017 Deccan Herald - State
The High Court of Karnataka has directed the Regional Passport Office (RPO) to issue a passport within six weeks to a girl with her stepfathers name on it. Sandhya (name changed) had moved the high court, seeking directions that her biological fathers name be replaced with her stepfathers name in her passport. Sandhyas biological father had abandoned her mother after her birth. The mother remarried seven years after divorce was granted to her as she was unable to trace her husband. She applied for a passport in 2015 and mentioned her step-fathers name in the column for fathers name in the application. Among documents submitted to the RPO, she had her biological fathers name on her birth certificate and her step-fathers name on her class 10 marks card. When RPO officials pointed this out, Sandhya narrated her story and made a request to have her step-fathers name on the passport. But the RPO issued a passport which had her biological fathers name. She approached the court after her request to make the ...

HC demands response to plea challenging law on spouse's right to stay together 14.9.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Delhi High court on Wednesday issued a notice to the Centre seeking their response on a plea which challenged the constitutionality of the Restitution of Conjugal Rights after the privacy judgment passed by the Supreme Court. A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Harishankar directed the Centre to file its stand by December 8 in connection with the matter. The directions came on a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) which stated that section 9 of the Hindu Marriage Act 1955 titled Restitution of Conjugal Rights be declared void and unconstitutional as per Article 13(2) of the Indian Constitution in light of the nine-Bench constitutional ruling which made the Right to Privacy a fundamental right. The plea, filed by Sanjiv Kumar, said that the observations of the Privacy Ruling were that "it is crystal clear that state cannot force a wife (female) or husband (male) when to consent for sex/intercourse/cohabitation and women's right to procreate. According to Section 9 of the Hindu Marriage ...
