demand maintenance from her husband who has denied her conjugal Rights(2 posts)
Yes. But she must apply to the court within two month after his conviction. The court can then order him to pay her a maintenance allowance not exceeding Rs. 500 per month(its basic,its varies). Before passing an order to this effect the court must give a reasonable hearing to both sides in order to come to a fair figure which is in keeping with the position and status of the parties, the reasonable wants of the wife and her available resources.
The maintenance allowance ordered by the court shall be a charge even on the property that the husband acquires after the date of the order.498A CRUSADER
