Firstly the Husband cannot just remove you from the "Matrimonial Home". You have rights under the Domestic Violence Act where you can get an order from the court permitting you to stay in the matrimonial home.

You also have rights for maintenance under the Hindu Marriage Act, Under Section 498 - A of the IPC etc.

This are just generic points based on the broad query put up by you.
