Every petition/application filed in the court takes its own time for execution.  You cannot expect that if you file an execution petition today, it will be executed tomorrow, because court has to go by the procedure prescribed by law. When any EP is filed, notice is issued to the other party. When the opp. party appears he files his SAY to the petition. In maint. cases you can go for attachment of salary of the husband. Also under the Crpc, distress warrant is issued or arrest warrant is issued against the husband. The Crpc provides for imprisonment for one month for one month maintainance default. In civil maint. cases the property of the husband can be attached and sold to recover the maintainance amount. In case of immovable property, the applicant should file the property extracts of the property.
