On the basis of Cruelty you can file Divorce petition in your near by Family Court. Separately file for maintenance or permanent settlement. Kindly consult with an Advocate as soon as possible personally.

I think by u/s 9 and 13 of Hindu marriage act he is blackmailing you.
If you think so,first of all you should lodge the FIR against your husband and his family for demanding dowry and quarrel with you and your family in your native place and initiate the proceedings of section 125 of C.rpc for maintenance.

Hi, he can't file the case under sec. 13 until he has no valid ground, if he files the case you can contest it very easly, and farmost important you send him reply of his legal notice stating it's a cruelty on you, if he is not keeping you with him, and you can start legal proceedings for restoration under sec. 9.

You must immediately file divorce petition at Kanpur along with complaint under section 125 crpc for maintenance. Additionally you should also file a criminal case under section 498a, 504 and 506 of IPC and 3/4 DP act. You can also file a complaint under dimestic violence act directly to the court. You should have acted upon immediately instead of sitting idle and waiting action by your husband.
