Dear Sir,

The wife cannot claim maintenance under CRPC section 125 as well as the Hindu Marriage Act. This is because of the doctrine of jeopardy which says that no man shall be put twice in peril for the same offence. She has the option of choosing either one of the reliefs and not both. But the scope of maintenance under CRPC is wider.

Hope this clears your doubt.
