The MM court has ordered me to pay Rs.4,000/- as maintenance. And provide accommodation to her or pay Rs.2,000/- extra to her for accommodation. My query is that I stay in Virar. She is staying in Ghatkopar at her parents house. Her matrimonial home was in Virar. So can I provide accommodation in Virar. Or will her lawyer insist on accommodation to be provided in Ghatkopar only where she is presently staying with her parents. The MM has not specified where the accommodation should be provided. The order only says to provide alternate accommodation or pay Rs.2,000/- for it. I don't want to give cash to her as I know she will not take a separate accomodation and she will continue to stay in her parents house and enjoy my money for her expenses. I want to teach her a lesson by providing accommodation in Virar. The distance between Virar and Ghatkopar is 60 Kms. The case is going on in MM court which is near her parents house.
Also U/s.19 of DV Act clause (f) directing the respondent to secure same level of alternate accommodation for the aggrieved person as enjoyed by her in the shared household or to pay rent for the same, if the circumstances so require: Provided that no order under clause (b) shall be passed against any person who is a woman.
So I think that if I get an accommodation in Virar for her then there shouldn't be any problem as it is not specified in the clause as to where the alternate accommodation should be provided.
Thanks & Regards,
