fixing 6 days time to decide the application for maintenace would not do justice to either of the parties as it is too short a time that in most of the cases it would lead a second round of litigation at appellate stage on maintenace application putting the main divorce petition side cornerned for long.thirty days time would have been much better,

Sixty days limitation is hardly observed. In most of the cases the application remains pending for months together for one or the other reasons.
