- Delhi court asks woman seeking alimony to find a job, stop being a financial burden to husband
New Delhi: A woman has been advised by a Delhi court to make sincere endeavour to find a job, saying she is well-qualified and cannot be allowed to sit idle at home to put financial burden on her estranged husband.
The court took into consideration that the woman, who was seeking alimony from her husband, was more qualified than him and was also an able-bodied person having capacity to earn. District Judge Rekha Rani noted that the man, who had filed an appeal against the amount of maintenance of Rs 12,000 which he was directed to pay to his estranged wife, was now ready to help her in finding a job and had also agreed to pay Rs 12,000 per month to her for a year.
"Respondent (woman) admitted being more qualified than the appellant (man). She admitted being able-bodied person and having capacity to earn. As such she cannot be allowed to sit idle at home to put financial burden on the appellant. Let her make sincere endeavour to find work. "As offered by the man, if the woman needs assistance of the appellant in finding job, she may communicate with him by sending SMS on mobile/email," the court said.
It also directed both of them to exchange their mobile numbers and email addresses, within a week of passing the order before the trial court. "The man has agreed to pay her maintenance of Rs 12,000 per month for one year and during this period, she should make sincere efforts and start working. The impugned order is operative for one year from the date of order," the judge said.
