This is the judgment from Gujarat High Court, wherein it held concurrent jurisdiction exists between 125 CrPC and PWDV Act.
From Para 12,
Therefore, even if there is no reference of maintenance either under sub-Section 2 of Section 12 or in Section 20 of the Act, the fact remains that there is concurrent jurisdiction the statute provides concurrent jurisdiction and, therefore, it cannot be said that there is over ruling of jurisdiction while granting maintenance in different proceedings. At the most, what is required to be considered while deciding the claim of maintenance is that amount already awarded in a previous litigation may be taken into consideration for arriving at final amount of maintenance and, thereby, if order of only additional amount is there, then there is no overlapping and if award is for maximum amount of maintenance that can be awarded then set off against amount payable under any previous proceedings is to be extended.

When petitioner is relying upon citations which are referred herein above and are already considered by the first appellate Court while rejecting the appeal, it would be appropriate for the petitioner herein to go through the legal provision properly. The time has come that litigants restrain themselves from agitating the issue which has already been decided by competent Court, only because they are not comfortable with the same.
