PAPPU RAM @ PREMSUKH v SHIVARI @ NIRMALA - CW Case No. 5872 of 2004  RD-RJ 101 (13 January 2005)
S.B.Civil Writ Petition NO.5872/2004
Pappu @ Pram Sukh vs
Shivari @ Nirmala
DATE OF ORDER : - 13.1.2005
HON'BLE MR. PRAKASH TATIA,J.
Mr. J.S.Choudhary, for the petitioner.
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner.
The petitioner is aggrieved against the order dated 19th August, 2004 passed by the District Judge, Merta on application of the non- petitioner filed under Section 24 of the Hindu Marriage Act by which the trial court awarded maintenance @ Rs.1,000/- per month to the non- petitioner and further awarded Rs.2,000/- as litigation cost.
According to learned counsel for the petitioner, the non- petitioner is pursuing her petition, which was filed under Section 125
Cr.P.C. and as per the law the non-petitioner cannot get the maintenance both under Section 24 of the Hindu Marriage Act as well as under Section 125 Cr.P.C. However, learned counsel for the petitioner, admitted that in case maintenance is awarded under both the provisions then the maintenance awarded under Section 125 Cr.P.C. is required to be set off from the impugned award passed by the civil court.
Admittedly, in this case, no maintenance has been awarded to the non-petitioner in the proceedings under Section 125 Cr.P.C.
Therefore, at present there is no question of claiming of setting off of any amount from the amount as awarded by the civil court. In case any maintenance is awarded against the petitioner under Section 125
Cr.P.C. after considering the order of the civil court dated 19th August, 2004, the petitioner can move appropriate application for modification of the order in case, he is to pay double amount in two proceedings.
In view of the above, I do not find any merit in this writ petition and the same is hereby dismissed.
