Other Income of a Policeman and Divorce Maintenance Settlement

28 December 2012

A policeman, constable Sainu Virkar of Thane was asked to pay his wife Rs. 16,000 month on a takehome pay of Rs.15,822 on gross pay of Rs. 26,278 per month.

The logic seems to be the arguments from his wife that Virkar brings home Rs.50,000 pm as bribes. Judge accepted the argument as other income even though there is no proof for it and ordered payment of maintenance at Rs. 16,000 pm.

What will be the consequences of such a decision given by the Judge?
