Compensation for facing false matrimonial case filed by wife
Wife filed a matrimonial case against the husband and got awarded interim maintenance. Finally the petition came to be dismissed in favour of the husband. Whether the husband can recover the interim maintenance paid to wife?

interim maintenance was paid as per court orders . he need not pay further maintenance but money already paid to wife as per court directions cant be recovered
If the case has been dismissed then husband is absolved of his liability to pay any further amount to wife, but the amount already paid cannot be recovered.
if case is dismissed it means no future maintenance is granted. but already paid can not be recovered as court has not ordered for same
