Report No. 63
7.12. Dower or maintenance.-
It has been held that where a claim for dower1 or maintenance2 is decreed, it is the discretion of the court to award interest on the amount till the recovery of the amount. We think that in such cases also interest should be specifically provided for. This concludes discussion of the important situations which fall under the proviso and which should be dealt with specifically. We shall now discuss a few other situations.
