A Bank official has taken voluntary retirement and received all his retirement benefits such as PF, Gratuity, leave encashment, etc. which is his own earnings and for his livlihood. His ex-wife (marraige is already null and void) is keeping the minor son and she has filed false Dom.Violence case and is now claiming compensation and maintenance for the child. For this purpose, she is asking the respondent to provide details of the VRS benefits received to her for her to proceed with the case. Is he obligated to inform the details of such payouts received to the ex-wife upon her enquiry through her lawyer. Is there any provision in law that the respondent has to provide such details to her and whether she can has a right to claim such money. Please give me the exact views and the law in this regard and the sections and acts also. Urgent please.
The husband has to fight for the retirement benefits. Ideally this should not be touched. If he is young and has taken VRS, then the question could be raised. If is is around or more than 50 years of age and takes VRS, then it could be understood. The wife if working cannot claim that benefits. Rest is based on the case details.
