Dear Client,
As per law female child is entitled to claim the maintenance till the female child marries, however in exceptional circumstances the major son may claim maintenance from his father too. There are various ruling of the Hon'ble Court, which supports this view. In case you need any further legal assistance for the same feel free to contact.
