How much claim as maintenence

My wife stayed with me for 4 months after marriage. She is 24 years old. BA graduate and topper of her university. My question is if she files a divorce case along with maintenence, how much from my salary can the supreme court order to give her. My gross salary is around one lakh. After tax deduction, it comes around 80 thousand.


1/3 of salary
