Well nothing to say here, 2 crore per year for studies in India. Imagine what they would demand after marriage, even Tata’s or Ambani’s would have a tough time 🙂
NEW DELHI: Two sisters have moved a trial court seeking a maintenance of over Rs four crore per year from their father to pursue studies and meet daily expenses, saying they had left home in 2010 due to harassment meted out by their parents.
The girls, native of Ludhiana in Punjab, filed their plea before metropolitan magistrate Monika Saroha, alleging that they were subjected to torture, harassment, beating and all kinds of abuse, when they were residing with their parents.
The younger sister, preparing for her civil service exam, told the judge that “they are students and they have no source of income to maintain them”.
The court has issued notice to the father seeking his response by January next year. In their plea, the girls told the court that the trouble began when the elder sister, a final year B. Com student, told her father, a shopkeeper, that she wanted to pursue MBA. The younger one, a first-year B. Com student, also wanted to study MBA. But their father threatened to withdraw both of them from college, the petition said. The counsel also said the parents should be prohibited from committing any act of domestic violence.
“The girl’s father should be stopped from repeating any acts of physical and mental abuse, sexual abuse, threatening, lodging false cases or sending friends to threaten them and their friends,” their advocate ShaanMohan said.
“In these facts and circumstances, this court may direct the respondents to pay the aggrieved (the two sisters) a sum of Rs 2,00,00,000 each,” the counsel added.
Earlier, the Delhi high court had provided them with police protection after they alleged that their family friends “attacked” them.
