Yes, there are provisions in law for the respondent to apply for alteration in the order on the basis of change in circumstances. The Magistrate may grant relief to the respondent.
The maintenance & rent benefits can only be paid if the respondent has sufficient means. If in changing circumstances, he is struggling to meet both the ends, it is bound to be altered that the order passed for the maintenance & rent be revised upon an application by the respondent.

1. If the respondent is appealing u/s 29 of the domestic violence act, he can apply for alteration, however:
2. It is a general provision in ohat the judgements can be appealed in the higher forum. However, grant of a decree is totally on the basis of the legal aspects & of technical nature.
As I mentioned before, the court has to take into account of all possibilities & situations before fixing & altering the amount.
If anybody dies, or paralysed in an accident & could not even meet his both ends, would/can the court force him to comply with such an order?? Or put him for rigorous punishment???!!!!!!!!
