Permanent Alimony – After Passing of Divorce Decree

In the event permanent alimony has not been granted probably for the reason that no such application was moved and pressed for, the same can be applied even after passing of the decree. Section 25 of the Hindu Marriage Act itself envisages that the wife can initiate proceedings for grant of permanent alimony even after the decree of divorce. Therefore, the court does not become functus officio with the passing of the decree and continues to have jurisdiction to award alimony thereafter. Smt. Poonam Sharma v. Vishnu Kumar, 2018 (130) ALR 490.
