Maintenance application


An application u/s 125 Cr.P.C. maintenance was claimed by wife for one year starting from January 1, 2019 and ending on January 31, 2020. For continuation, next application was made on July 25, 2021. Is the maintenance application valid? Can it be challenged in the court? OR any steps could be taken against this act!

1. IF Wife is duly entitled to "maintenance" THEN court will honor such Application and there is nothing illegal or improper about.

Need to know more details before answering your question precisely. However wife is entitled for maintenance at the same time it can be challenged in Court.Court will decide on the merits of the case

I think I was not able to articulate my question. The point is whether there is any time limit to file the continuation application as the last application was until January, 31, 2021. The July, 25 2021 application is retrospective, asking for maintenance from February,1, 2021. Isn't there a gap period of 5 months?

The maintenance is for Rs 5000/- per month and the claim was made fro one year from 1 January, 2019 to 31 January, 2020. The next application was made on 25 July 2020 claiming maintenance from 1 February, 2020 to 31 January, 2021. My question is making an application and claiming retrospective maintenance  for five months is legally valid or not?

The previous claim ended on 31 January, 2020 and the new one was to begin on February 1, 2020 for which ideally the petition should have been filed in January 2020. At that time, there was no COVID and all offices were functioning normally and Lockdown was introduced only on 25 March, 2020.
