It appears that you have given jewellery worth Rs15 Lakhs to your wife and that itself is good enough to prove that the 498a case is false.
Maintenance is granted only if the spouse is not working or not in a position to maintain herself.
If the spouse is working, then there is no question of grant of maintenance.
