The Supreme Court in its order noted that the husband had agreed to enhance the monthly maintenance payable to the wife from ₹4,000 to ₹10,000 per month after a suggestion was made in this regard by the Court.
“The maintenance amount is being enhanced in view of the statement made by the learned counsel appearing on behalf of the appellant to ₹10,000 per month. The appellant – Rohit Jaiswal will continue to make payment in terms of the statement. In case of default, respondent no.2/ informant will be entitled to take steps/recourse for execution before the trial court,” the Court directed.
The maintenance fixed on the statement of the appellant may be modified, enhanced or reduced by the trial court/ appellate court, the top court clarified.
