In all court cases, where stays are granted in future, the same will expire in 6 months from the date of such order unless similar extension is granted by passing a speaking order. The speaking order must show that the case was of such exceptional nature that continuing the stay was more important than having the trial finalized. The trial court where order of stay of civil or criminal proceedings is produced, may fix a date not beyond six months of the order of the stay so that on expiry of period of stay, proceedings can commence unless order of extension of stays produced.

Query: I filed civil suit for permanent injunction to restrain defendants from interfering into my peaceful possession of shop question taken on rent from defendant. I moved an application under Order 39 Rule 1 and 2 CPC wherein trial court directed parties to maintain status quo regarding possession of shop. During pendency of suit, defendant installed a lock on the shutter of my shop in violation of status quo order. Can I get police help in getting my possession restored back in view of the order of status quo.
