Wife Entitled To Know Husband’s Salary

In Sunita Jain vs Pawan Jain, the Madhya Pradesh High Court, while upholding an order of Central Information Commission (CIC), has observed that a wife is entitled to know what remuneration her husband is getting.

In this case, the wife had filed a petition seeking maintenance from her husband in which she alleged that, as a very high officer in the Telecommunication Department (BSNL), her husband is drawing salary more than Rs. 2,25,000 per month. She sought this information from BSNL through the RTI, which was denied. After a few rounds of litigations, the matter reached the Central Information Commission, which passed the order under Section 4(1)(b)(x) of the Right to Information Act directing BSNL to comply with the provisions of the Act by making information about remuneration available on the public domain.
