She can file it again if there is some change in circumstances. Withdrawal of case at this stage does not operate as a bar to the filing of case in future.

 " In my view, a so called "future maintenance" of a lump sum amount of money cannot be made frozen on time. It is flexible and changes from time to time according to the change of circumstances the wife is confronted with."
"It was also decided in the case of K. Pandian v. A. Savithiri reported in 1999 Cri. L.J. 8, that the mere fact some amount is given to wife for future maintenance would not disentitle her from claiming maintenance."

Hi,
 Yes your wife can claim maintenance through afresh petition under criminal or civil law either in a magistrate court or district/family court, in some cases before a civil court if any property claims. The settlement and withdrawal on the basis of settlement does not take away a wife' right of future maintenance as her husband divorced or not and till she can maintain herself or get married .Of course the lump sum amount paid   will be  considered when she ask for maintenance in future .

yes your wife can again make claim for maintenance  on account of change in circumstances 

. it is well settled law as laid down by many judicial pronouncements that "future maintenance" of a lump sum amount of money cannot be made frozen on time. It is flexible and changes from time to time according to the change of circumstances the wife is confronted with."  
the amount of Rs 10 lakhs already paid would be considered by court when her application for maintenance is considered by court in future .
