For the purposes of calculating alimony, there is no fixed formula it depends on case to case. The Supreme Court however in one of the judgments has set a benchmark. According to the apex court for the purposes of the maintenance to be paid by a husband to his estranged wife, 25% of the net salary of the husband might constitute a “just and proper” amount as alimony.
