SUPREME COURT OF INDIA

(2.)The High Court proceeded on a premise that the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Divorce) Act, 1986 provides that a divorced wife will be entitled to maintenance till the iddat period only and not any further and on that basis set aside the order made by the Principal Judge, Family Court, Dhanbad in Misc. Case No. 40 of 1991 (arising out of MP Case No. 19 of 1982). This proposition of law on which the High Court proceeded is plainly contrary to the decision of this Court in Danial Latifi v. Union of India. Therefore, the order made by the High Court is set aside and the order made by the Family Court stands restored. The appeal is allowed accordingly.
