Application can be moved for permanent alimony even after dissolution of marriage.
Section 25 of the Act, 1955 refers to the payments to be made under it by one's spouse to another as maintenance.
The section is wide enough to enable the Court exercising jurisdiction under the Act, 1955, that is, under any provisions of the Act, 1955 including proceeding for annulment, to grant permanent alimony.
In other words, the Section vests wide power in the Court making orders for maintenance and support of one's spouse by the other where it passes any decree for restitution of conjugal rights, judicial separation, dissolution of marriage by divorce or annulment of the marriage on the ground that it was void or voidable or even at any time subsequent thereto.
