In a very interesting case, the Madhya Pradesh High Court ordered that a woman has the right to know the remuneration of her husband.

The bench of Justice S. K. Seth and Nandita Dubey ruled the verdict on the petition of Sunita Jain who wanted to have a higher maintenance from her estranged husband, Pawan Kumar, stating that he was a senior officer in BSNL. Sunita was getting a maintenance of Rs. 7,000 per month.

Counsel for the petitioner asserted that Sunita’s husband is on a reputed designation with state-run BSNL.  Sunita had filed an RTI in the case to get the information of Pawan’s salary after a trial court rejected her plea.
