The court will issue NBW against the husband. 

File an application for cancellation of the AB on the ground that the husband is misusing the liberty granted by the court.

If there is endorsement on the notice that he refused to receive the summons then the court can take this as valid acceptance and hence without your husband's presence the court can proceed ex parte.

So ask the court to grant interim maintenance and on default of such payment the court in filing of the execution case can issue warrant of arrest.

Refused to accept summons is proper service


2) summons is deemed to have been served 


3)court can pass orders for interim maintenance if your husband does not attend court or engage lawyer inspite of service  of summons 


4) in 498 A case court can issue bailable warrant against accused

1. He has taken AB for the FIR registered u/s 498A of IPC and for DV no arrest is made.


2. If it is established that your husband has refused to receive the Summons for the DV case filed by you, the said case might proceed ex-parte.

- As per law, if summons is not duly served then no action can be taken against the Respondent , but if  Respondent or his family members refused to receive the summons of the Court , and further fails to attend court, then the Court will pass Ex- Parte order against the Respondent in the D.V Case.

- Hence, Court will pass maintenance order , including the other prayed benefit in favour of you. 

- Since, he has taken AB in the 498 A FIR , but if your husband & other persons named in the FIR , not appeared on the date fixed by the Court, then Court will issue NBW against him , and not only this , even his surety will be cancelled.

The criminal case under section 498a is different to that of the DV case. 

In the former, the police will serve the notice to the accused to appear before the court, if he do not attend the court, then the court may issue NBW  and even may cancel bail for jumping bail.

In DV case it may set him exparte and an exparte decision may be given against him.

The court shall issue warrant in the case. The warrant is for non appearance so the AB shall not apply also it can pass order of interim maintenance.

Non receiving is proper delivery of summons. Now court will pass ex parte order if he not appeared on next date.

Submit supreme court judgement that proper delivery of notice assume when party refused to accept notice/summons.

He has rejected the summons but that means he knows that a case has been filed. Therefore this should be informed and the court must be requested to proceed ex parte and grant interim maintenance.
