Maintenance under Domestic Violence Act to be adjusted against maintenance awarded u/s 125 CrPC
Vishal vs Sow Aparna and another
Bombay HC, Aurangabad Bench
CRIMINAL REVISION APPLICATION NO.203 OF 2017
About/from the judgment:
When the interim order came to be passed under the DV Act, there was no other order in existence awarding any maintenance to the wife and the daughter. Therefore, it cannot be said that the amount, as has been awarded by way of interim maintenance under the DV Act, is in addition to the amount of maintenance awarded under any other provision of law. Had there been any earlier order in existence awarding some maintenance to the respondents and in spite of the said order, if the learned Magistrate dealing with the proceeding under the DV Act, by recording reasons, would have granted some more amount by way of maintenance in addition to the maintenance already granted in favour of the aggrieved person, the position would have been different. In such a case, the adjustment could not have been permissible.
