The Delhi high court has ordered a vice president of one of world's largest banking firm to pay Rs 70 lakh alimony to his estranged wife and their four-year-old daughter. The court noted the man abandoned his wife and daughter in India and led a luxurious life in Dubai. Ashok (name changed) and AshaGA_googleFillSlot("ht_story_top_lhs_200x200");(name changed) got married in 2000 and started living in Dubai, where Ashok was heading the operation of a Dubai-based banking firm. After some time, the couple got back to India where Ashok allegedly abandoned his wife and minor daughter.

In 2008 Asha filed a petition in the court for grant of maintenance of herself and their daughter. Initially, a trial court granted maintenance of R80,000 per month in accordance to her husband's earnings.

But after a sessions court reduced the maintenance from R80,000 to R30,000 per month, Asha's counsel Prabhjit Jauhar filed a petition in the Delhi high court.

The counsel told the court that Ashok was concealing his true income and that he be told to submit his employer's certificate along with his monthly earnings and his statement of bank accounts for the past three years.

The counsel also demanded that a statement stating how much bonus he received during these past years should be filed in the court. Ashok's counsel Malvika Rajkotia said there was no practice wherein the bank could issue such a certificate. 

Justice Ajit Bharihoke struck down Ashok's contention and directed him to file his employer certificate including the perks and bonus accrued to him every year.

But later, Ashok agreed to come to a mutual agreement. In an in-chamber proceeding, he agreed to pay R70 lakh as alimony to the wife and daughter.

80 lacs must be his 1-3 years' earning in dubai. He abandoned his wife and child in India and got out easily in court.

oops, 70 lacs not 80 lacs. Even in India one can easily make 12-15 lacs p.a. in that kind of position, in Dirhams it can easily be 10x of what one makes in Rupees.
Is there any properly laid down law which says what percent of income one can claim? Seems like all is based on how much you bribe the judge.

will tell you later

80 laks is very high amount alimony. It all depend upon the actual life style and standard of Living. Alos, one can equate currency gain in differnt country and comapre it wrt to India. Its good that NRI doesn't belong to UK where as each pound costs 80 Rupees

It is also to intimate that bread cost in UK is also equal to 120 Rs where as in India it costs 10-15 Rs and its very strange to equate the income of other country with India

This judgement need revision. too much paid and that guy agreed. Earning in one currency can not be compared in another. Rs 80 L roughly equal to 200k USD. If he earns in Dihram he will be spending in Dihram also ... errornous judgement.
