The Supreme Court of India has instructed the petitioner-wife to approach the High Court for appropriate relief on reduction of maintenance due to change of circumstances in which it was earlier reduced.
The High Court has allowed the reduction in maintenance on the ground that the respondent-husband has been paying E.M.I. of Rs.42,000/- for the home loan which he has availed.
Though Learned Council of the petitoner submitted that after the impugned order is passed, the respondent-husband has stopped paying E.M.I. for the home loan.
To this, the Apex Court said that the petitoner is open to approach the High Court for appropriate relief due to change of circumstances.
It further requested the High Court to consider and decide the same in accordance with law if the appeal is filed.
The order has been passed by JUSTICE R. BANUMATHI and JUSTICE A.S. BOPANNA on 03-07-2019.
