It is further ordered that during the whole year, considering the convenience, education and health of the child, the father shall have exclusive continuous custody of the child for 30 days. However, it may be divided in parts also but it should not be exceeded more than 30 days in a year.
2. In response to the notice issued by this court, the respondent has put appearance through Mr. M.K. Patel, learned advocate, and has also remained personally present before the court. At the request of the court, the minor child Nihal was produced before the court and the court has ascertained the wishes of the minor child in the chamber.

The custody of the child would, thereafter, be required to be handed over to the respondent on 22nd May, 2016.
4. Accordingly, by way of an interim arrangement, the respondent wife is directed to hand over the custody of minor child Nihal to the applicant on the morning of 8.5.2016. The applicant herein shall hand over the custody of the child to the respondent on 22.5.2016. Stand over to 9.6.2016.
