If husband's salary increases then the wife also entitled to increase in alimony: Haryana High Court

On Tuesday, 9th February, 2021, Punjab and Haryana High Court had held that, if the husband’s salary increases then the wife is also entitled to receive more alimony from her husband. Justice HS Madan was hearing an appeal which was filed by the husband against the order of Panchukla Family Court in which the Family Court had ordered the husband to pay more allowances to his wife as he had received a raise at work. According to the Court, the allowance of the wife should increase from Rs. 20000 to Rs 28000.

The husband had claimed that his salary rose from Rs 95 thousand to Rs 1 lakh 14 thousand and, after deductions, amounts to Rs 92,175. He had challenged the court to question how he could give Rs 28 thousand to his wife after the deductions. The High Court had rejected the arguments of the petitioner by stating that, the High Court can only interfere if the order of the Lower Court is against the law or biased.

The High Court had dismissed the application of the husband and held that, if there is an increase in the salary of the husband then the wife is also entitled to an increase in alimony.
