Dear Querist

As per latest directions issued by Hon'ble Supreme Court of India vide its judgment pronounced in 2020, both parties are required to furnish Affidavits in prescribed format in all maintenance cases along with Income Tax Returns as under:

Whether assessed to income tax?

If yes, submit copies of the Income Tax Returns for the periods given below :

(i) One year prior to marriage
(ii) One year prior to separation
(iii) At the time when the Application for maintenance is filed

I hope that above details are sufficient in answering your query.
