Assuming you are Hindus,

Llack of sexual intercourse can tantamount to mental cruelty and is a ground for divorce. You can file a case for divorce against him under section 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act.

Now regarding maintenance,

An application for maintenance can be filed under section 125 of Cr.P.C.

As per duty it is the duty of the husband to mantain wife and children.

Impotency or non fullfillment of marital obligation is a ground of divorce and you shall be entitled for maintenance etc.
