Mother to pay interim relief to daughter on court orders
A Delhi court has directed the mother of <g data-gr-id="25">a one</g> year and nine months old girl to pay her Rs 5,000 per month in order to meet the child's basic requirements. The court passed the direction on an application filed by her father on her behalf.
According to the application, the couple got married in 2011 and the girl was born in 2012. In 2013 the mother left the child and her father and did not even provide any financial help to her daughter.
A lawyer representing the child, submitted before the court that her father's salary is only Rs 8,000 per month while her mother teaches in a Primary School and earns a handsome salary of about
Rs 30,000 per month.
The application further stated that the mother of the child was deliberately not providing any financial help to her daughter with the father looking after the child since her birth.
Giving a break-up of expenses to be incurred for the upkeep of the girl, the applicant demanded a monthly maintenance of Rs 15,000. Pending final disposal of the application, the court asked her mother to give her Rs 5,000 per month as an interim relief.
“Since, the child is the responsibility of both the parties and the respondent is working in MCD school as a teacher, the respondent is directed to pay a sum of Rs 5,000 per month to the child towards ad interim maintenance from the date of filing of the application till the disposal of the application for interim maintenance,” the court said in its order.The case will now come up for hearing on December 10.
