In an unusual case, a court in Jaipur allowed a man to pay his wife’s maintenance dues in the form of one and two rupee coins, amounting to Rs 55,000 for 11 months.
The man’s family brought the money in seven sacks to the court following his arrest for non-payment.
The wife’s counsel objected to this mode of payment, considering it as “mental harassment.”
However, the judge permitted the payment but instructed the man to count the coins in court, creating packets of Rs 1000 each. These packets would be handed over to his wife during the next hearing scheduled for June 26, as reported by lawyers representing both parties.
The couple’s divorce case is currently being heard in a family court. The court had previously ordered the husband, Dashrath Kumawat, to pay a monthly maintenance amount of Rs 5000, which he had failed to do for the past 11 months. As a result, Dashrath was arrested on June 17, following the issuance of a recovery warrant by family court number 1 due to his non-compliance with the maintenance payments.
“Since the husband refused to give the amount, the police arrested him. The family court was closed due to holidays so he was produced in the link court of Additional District Judge (ADG)-number 8.
“In the court, the family members of Dashrath reached with coins worth Rs 55000 to give to his wife,” Raman Gupta, the advocate of the husband, told PTI on Tuesday.
He said that the coins were in the denomination Re 1 and Rs 2 and were stuffed in seven sacks.
The advocate of his wife objected to this, but it was argued on behalf of the husband that these coins are legal tender and no one can refuse to accept them.
“The court then allowed the husband to give the coins after counting them on the next hearing in the family court on June 26. Till then, the coins will remain in the custody of the court. The husband will have to count the coins and make packets of Rs 1000 each before handing them over to the wife in the court,” he said.
Wife Seema Kumawat’s advocate Ramprakash Kumawat said that giving coins to the woman was “equal to mental harassment”.
“It was done in a preplanned manner just to harass the woman. However, the court has permitted him to give the coins,” he said.
