Husband not allowing me to stay with him what should I do?

I am married to a guy in Delhi working in reputed institution ( ICWA) on 21 Nov, 2011. Since then I never stayed with my husband except for few days at my In Laws home during festivals days ( Holi and Diwali). I haven't have lived even 40 days with him as he denies my stay with him as he denies on the ground of not having enough money to maintain wife in metro. He lives with his brother and lives in an expensive lifestyle. He further threatened many a time for not talking on the issue of living together else he will leave me. I am feeling cheated and immensely depressed. Kindly advice.
