Court can grant more maintenance than what is claimed by wife – MP high court

The Madhya Pradesh High Court has recently held that there is no bar for a court to award maintenance more than what is claimed in Section 125 CrPC application.

“It also appears that the non-applicant works in railway department and has sufficient source of income and thus he has legal and moral obligation to maintain the applicants. Therefore, the learned trial court has rightly held that the non-applicant has sufficient source of income and hence is liable to maintain the applicants.” The court observed.
