It is the discretion of the court for what amount he may award.
But it is based on the income of the male, normally court may award one time amount as Fix Deposit for maintenance and which is full and final.

Rs 1000 per month is the minimum amount sanction by the competent court. No other court can lower down this amount. Before divorce decree its the discretion of the Court to sanction the any reasonable amount for Maintenance under section 125 Cr.P.C.

तलाक याचिका और 125 सीआरपीसी के तहत मिलने वाला भरण-पोषण अलग-अलग होता है।
तलाक याचिका के विचाराधीन होने के दौरान अन्तरिम भरण-पोषण कितना देना होगा, यह इस बात पर निर्भर करता है कि आपकी पत्नी ने न्यायालय से कितना मांगा है किन्तु न्यायालय कितना देना उचित समझता है।
