New Delhi: Ministry of Women and Child Development (WCD) plans to recommend changes in the current anti-dowry law in order to ensure that women do not misuse the law.

 

The ministry will table a bill in the cabinet proposing that only husband, and his parents be named in the case for dowry. The bill proposes to free other relatives from dowry charges.

 

Talking to Bhaskar News, WCD Minister Krishna Tirath said victims of violence related to dowry often drag other relatives who are not involved in the case. The bill aims to give relief to such relatives, he added.
The minister further said he also proposes to increase the sentence for dowry related violence and torture to up to seven years.

 

According to the proposed amendments, a newly married couple will be required to list all gifts received at the time of wedding, including more than Rs 5,000 cash received as Streedhan. Tirath said this will help in bringing down the number of fake cases.

‘No liability’ businessman to pay Rs 10K maintenance to wife and daughter

Agencies : New Delhi, Wed Aug 22 2012, 13:55 hrs

A Delhi court has directed a businessman to pay Rs 10,000 per month as interim maintenance to his estranged wife and minor daughter.

Additional District Judge Sujata Kohli awarded the maintenance saying the man has admitted that he has no other liability to maintain, apart from his wife and the toddler.

The court fixed Rs 10,000 as interim maintenance, saying he concealed his income from it. It assessed his income on basis of his income tax return, in which, the court added “most businessmen are reflecting income much lower than the actual.”

Assessing the Ashok Vihar-based businessman’s income to be Rs 30,000 per month, the court asked him to pay Rs 5,000 per month each to his estranged wife and daughter, who are living with the woman’s maternal house.

In her plea for maintenance, the woman said she had married the man in February 2007 and they have a daughter, who goes to a play school and is totally dependent upon her maternal grand father for her day-to-day needs.

She said the child requires basic necessities including her education expenses, clothing and toys. She added she is unemployed and is dependent on her father and required alimony from her husband to maintain her dignity.

She alleged her husband is living a luxurious life and has a tools business and earns nearly Rs one lakh per month.

The man, however, said he was doing job in a tools firm and was earning just Rs 3,300 per month and it was not enough to meet the ends. He also said he was ready to maintain his wife and daughter and the court should order them to live with him.

The estranged couple is also engaged in other litigation including dowry harassment and divorce case.

No time limit to file pleas for maintenance, says HC ; So once married, always shackled !!

 

Every law prescribes a period of limitation; so many years within which you shall can claim for a returned cheque; so many years within which you shall appeal against a decree etc etc

Now it seem, there is NO limitation on when the husband can be hit by a maintenance claim .. None other than a competent HC has decreed so !!

So …this should go a long way to support the “abla naaris” of India !! They can come after you , horrible, NON paying, cruel MEN of this world, any time they wish !!

In a reprieve for victims of domestic violence, the Bombay high court recently ruled that there is no time limit prescribed under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005, to file pleas seeking maintenance and other protection under the legislation. The high court last week held that the bar of limitation prescribed under the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) was not applicable for pleas under the DV Act.

“Hunger knows no limitation and need for sustenance can arise any time,” said justice UD Salvi, while dismissing an appeal filed by Shaikh Ishaq Budhanbhai, a Masjid Bunder resident, challenging a magistrate court order directing him to pay interim monthly maintenance of Rs7,000 to his estranged wife Shayeen and his two children.

Shayeen, a resident of Pimpalgaon in Ahmednagar district, had last year approached a local magistrate court under various provisions of the DV Act, alleging that Shaikh had driver her and their two children out of her matrimonial home, without making any provisions for their maintenance and shelter.

Acting on her plea, the magistrate court on November 21, 2011, directed Shaikh to pay Shayeen Rs3,000 as monthly maintenance and Rs2,000 each to the children. Shaikh then appealed before the Sessions court and later the high court.

He contended that his wife had approached the magistrate court more than three years after the alleged desertion and therefore the complaint had been barred by the period of limitation prescribed under the CrPC.

According to this, the period of limitation is six months for an offence punishable only with fine, one year for an offence punishable with imprisonment of up to one year, and three years for an offence punishable with imprisonment of between one and three years.

The high court, however, dismissed his appeal, holding that the bar of limitation would be applicable only to offences prescribed under section 31 of the DV Act (which says that breach of court orders under the Act amounts to criminal offence) and not to other pleas seeking maintenance, provision of shelter, and other such relief.
