Whether wife can be denied interim relief under dv act as sh

Whether wife can be denied interim relief under DV Act as she is granted interim maintenance in Divorce proceeding?

From a perusal of the orders impugned, I am of the view that both the Courts below did not take into account that a relief under Section 12 of the Act is in addition to any other relief which could be granted by any court of law to the petitioner in any forum. Both the courts have avoided giving interim relief only on the premise that the petitioner was being paid maintenance pendente lite under the orders of the competent court in divorce proceedings.

Meas interim maintenence can be granted under certain circumstances only.
