A father ,if he is incapable to maintain himself , can claim maintenance from her daughter if she has sufficient means to maintain his father.

Every person having sufficient means must maintain their aged parents as per law ,especially ,in view of Criminal Procedure Code,section 125.

But in this case the aged father can claim maintenance from her daughter but he cannot claim for the losses incurred because of the marriage.
