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.

How should, I defend myself.
