..... him.5. several considerations lead us to the conclusion that this argument is not well-founded. the hindu adoptions and maintenance act, 1956, repealed the hindu married women's right to separate residence and maintenance act, 1946, section 2 of which provided that a hindu married woman shall be entitled to separate residence and maintenance from her husband, inter alia, 'if he marries again''.it was held in a number of ..... any reason, ceases to live with her husband. we cannot think this to have been the intention of the legislature. in our opinion the word living' in clause (d) of section 18(2) of the hindu adoptions and maintenance act, 1956, means 'alive' and not 'living with him'.8. no other point has been pressed. in the result the plaintiff is entitled to a decree for ..... a new point not taken in the memorandum of the appeal. he submits that the plaintiff is now entitled to maintenance under section 18 of the hindu adoptions and maintenance act (act lxxviii of 1956), which came in force on 22-12-1956, and that her suit for future maintenance should therefore be decreed at rs. 25 per month from that date onward.we have permitted him to rely on ..... decree shall, forthwith be forwarded to the collector, etab, as required by order xxxiii, rule 14, c. p. c. the court-fee payable by the plaintiff shall be a first charge on the decretal amount. .....

Decided on : Oct-26-1960

Reported in : AIR1961P& H288

..... she was the dependent of nanta singh. the argument is that a person, who gets the estate of a deceased hindu under a will cannot be considered to be his heir within the scope of section 22(1) of the hindu adoptions and maintenance act lxxviii of 1956. the learned counsel has however not been able to draw our attention to any statute, principle or precedent in ..... ' but it is also at times used in its more general and comprehensive sense as indicating a person upon whom the property devolves on the death of another and hence when the intent is clear the word 'heir' may well be treated as equivalent to 'legatee' or 'devisee'. the true scope, effect and significance of this word is, therefore, in all ..... of fact.it is equally well settled that on an appeal it is incumbent upon the appellant to show some reason why the judgment appealed against should be disturbed and when after considering all the circumstances the appellant can only show some nicely balanced calculations which lead to the equal possibility of the judgment on either side being correct, he cannot ..... that she was married to nanta singh about 30 or 35 years ago. in the cross-examination, nothing was elicited which in any way discredited her testimony. in july 1959, when she gave her evidence, she was about 50 years old and she expressly stated that since she had not borne any child to her husband nanta singh, he contracted karewa .....
