INES MIRANDA vs SANTOSH K SWAMY on 14/12/2009
TRANSFER PETITION – Payment to Husband
The petitioner is seeking transfer of the case from Chennai to Bangalore. Her contention is that it is inconvenient for her to look after the case at Chennai because she is working in Bangalore and has a small child. Learned counsel appearing on behalf of the petitioner submits that it would not be inconvenient for the respondent-husband to prosecute the case in Bangalore as he is unemployed. The petitioner is directed to pay Rupees ten thousand as travelling expenses to the respondent since he is unemployed. Upon deposit of this amount, notice would be issued and the proceeding before the Trial Court shall be stayed.
