• Divorce and 498A

Filling for 498a and maintenance indirectly means that we are no more interested in the relationship and ready for divorce?

It only means that she has complained against you before police alleging your &/or family member's subjecting her to cruelty for gain.

After filing of 498A case the marriage hardly survives unless both parties are so desirous.

When once you file 498A and seek maintenance from your husband, the relationship between you & your husband will not be cordial and it may or may not end in divorce.

No. It's just temporary relief. Filing 498a and seeking does not constitute ground for divorce. Even after filing suit for maintenence and 498a you can contest the divorce petition.
