My sister and her husband were living separately because of her husband was oppressed and phyaically assault her everyday and also was beating her and one day he thrown her and her childrens out of the home....so my sister has been living with us in Nashik at our home. So my sister filled a case against her husband for getting alimony on monthly basis and finally she got it. But 3 month ago her husband dead due to corona at his hometown , Dhule, Maharashtra.
Now my query is her husband was working in MSEB (electricity board) and now when my sister claimed Society money in MSEB (MSEB co-operative bank) then those peoples said to my sister that she and her husband were living separately and already court case was going on, so as per them if husband sisters take a objection against that society money then that amount can not be hand over to my sister because my sister and her husband was living separately.
So can you please guide me how can my sister claim the MSEB society money.
Normally every account nomination is mandatory. Till the court gives a final verdict, the wife status continues. Contact colleagues and friends in MSEB society for smooth succession arrangements, and at the same time contact a local advocate before the amount is paid to some one else, so that he can issue a notice.
Seek the opinion of the advocate handling your sister's case, explain the problem and nonreceipt of maintenance and explore making a petition to the court and getting such orders if possible by filing such a petition in on going case.
