(i) In the case where such sum was paid before such order, from the date on which such order was made; – (ii) In any other case from the date of expiry of the period, if any, for which maintenance has been actually paid by the husband to the woman; (c) The woman has obtained a divorce from her husband and that she had voluntarily surrendered her rights to maintenance or interim maintenance, as the case may be, after her divorce, cancel the order from the date therefore. At the time of making any decree for recovery of any maintenance or dowry by any person to whom a monthly allowance for the maintenance and interim maintenance or any of them, has been ordered to be paid under Section 125, the civil court shall take into account the sum which has been paid to or recovered by, such person as monthly allowance in pursuance of the said order.
