Wife has the right to know husband's salary details: MP HC 27.5.2018 General News
A woman had the right to know the remuneration of her husband, the Madhya Pradesh High Court has observed. A High Court bench of Justices SK Seth and Nandita Dubey made the observation while hearing the petition of Sunita Jain who had sought a higher maintenance amount from her estranged husband claiming that he was a senior officer with state-run BSNL.

After a trial court rejected Sunita's plea that her husband produce his pay slip, she had filed a Right to Information plea to get his salary details.

Former Indian cricketer Maninder Singh and his estranged wife today told the Delhi High Court that they have decided to amicably settle their 16-year-long marital disputes, with him agreeing to pay her an amount of Rs 1.75 crore. The submission was made before a bench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Deepa Sharma which took it on record and disposed of the woman's appeal against a family court's August 2014 decision granting divorce to Singh on the ground of cruelty. The former cricketer had moved the family court in 2002 seeking divorce from his wife, whom he married in 1990, on the grounds of cruelty and desertion. They have two grown up children - a daughter and a son. Singh's estranged wife, Melly Singh, had challenged the decision claiming that the trial court order was based on incorrect appreciation of some SMSes sent between them.

DV case: Court denies maintenance to wife for lying about job 22.5.2018 General News
A Delhi court has taken away from a woman the maintenance amount of Rs 15,000 per month awarded to her by her estranged husband after finding that she had "mischievously concealed" her job as a government school teacher and claimed to be unemployed. Special Judge Virender Bhat rejected the appeal of the woman seeking enhancement of the maintenance amount and allowed the man's appeal to set aside the magisterial court's 2009 order by which she was given the monetary relief. "It needs to be noted here that the woman has very conveniently and mischievously concealed and withheld from the trial court the factum of her employment as government teacher..." the judge said. The court noted that she had approached the trial court after the Supreme Court had in 2013 given her the liberty to do so. The woman had knocked the doors of the apex court in 2011 after her husband secured from the Delhi High Court the relief of not paying her in 2010.

Applicability of Domestic Violence Act religion-neutral: HC 14.5.2018 General News
The provisions of the Domestic Violence Act, 2005, are aimed at protecting the rights of women effectively and do not exclude Muslim women from its purview, the Bombay High Court has ruled. "The enactment of the Domestic Violence Act in no way intends to restrict its application to any particular category of women, but it intends to protect any aggrieved woman who is a victim of domestic violence," Justice Bharati Dangre said. The HC was hearing a petition filed by a city-based Muslim man challenging a family court's order directing him to pay maintenance to his wife and children under the Domestic Violence Act. The petitioner claimed that they are from the Alvi Bohra community and hence both the parties are governed by Muslim Personal Law and their personal relationship is governed by the Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act 1937, the Dissolution of Muslim Marriage Act, 1939 and the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Divorce) Act. The high court, however, in its ...

A woman can lodge a complaint under the domestic violence law against the excesses committed by her ex-husband even after the dissolution of marriage, the Supreme Court has said.

"Can algae fly?" This question was posed by the Supreme Court to the Archeological Survey of India which faced its wrath for failure to take steps to protect the iconic Taj Mahal The top court also asked the government whether the ASI needed to be "thrown out of the picture" on protection and preservation of the historic white marble mausoleum.

SC notice on another plea against polygamy among Muslims 7.5.2018 General News
The Supreme Court today issued notice on a fresh plea by a woman seeking to declare the practices of polygamy and 'nikah halala' among Muslims as unconstitutional. A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud sought response from the Centre and others on a plea of Rani alias Sabnam challenging the practice of polygamy and 'nikah halala' in the community. She and her three minor kids were allegedly thrown out of the matrimonial home after her husband had re-married. The bench after hearing senior lawyer Shekhar Naphade and advocate Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay ordered tagging of her petition with a batch of pleas to be decided by a five-judge Constitution bench. While polygamy allows a Muslim man to have four wives, 'nikah halala' deals with the process in which a Muslim woman, who wants to re-marry her husband after divorce, has to first marry another person and get a divorce from him after the consummation. The apex court, on March 26, had ..

Wife's allegation of infidelity is cruelty, says HC; grants divorce to husband 6.5.2018 General News
The Delhi High Court has granted divorce to a man holding that his estranged wife's false allegation of illicit relation between him and his widowed sister-in-law amounted to cruelty. Holding that the allegations of illicit relations were not true, Justice J R Midha granted divorce to the man while setting aside a trial court's order of judicial separation of the couple who were married in 1978 and were residing in London. A decree of judicial separation does not dissolve a marriage and gives the couple time to introspect about their relationship and decide if they want to get back together, unlike a divorce which marks an end to marriage. Both the man and woman had challenged the trial court decision by separate appeals. The man wanted divorce contending that his wife was extremely suspicious, often accused him of flirting around, abused him, threw tantrums and was callous and irresponsible towards his mother. He had also said that since filing of the divorce plea in 2002, they have .
This isn't talaq, pay your wife maintenance, says court 6.5.2018 DNA: Money
The sessions court recently turned down a man's plea which challenged payment of interim maintenance to his wife on the grounds that she was the one who had opted for talaq. The court said that the 'talaq' the man, a Parbhani resident, was referring to was invalid as it did not fulfil legal requirements. The woman had given talaq by khula, which empowers a Muslim woman to initiate divorce with mutual consent. The judge held that the marriage between the estranged couple was not yet over and asked him to abide by its order of paying Rs 10,000 as interim maintenance. The court order said the woman, who in 2015 had filed a domestic violence case 15 years after their marriage, had proved that she was physically abused and assaulted. The case was heard by the metropolitan magistrate's court, which held that documents produced by the woman were sufficient to hold that there was abuse amounting to domestic violence. Article ...
