Dated the 13th June, 2018
The implication of the aforesaid judgment is that where any action by a development agency or an enforcement agency, as the case may be, was stayed by a court of law, the same shall stand vacated automatically at the expiry of 6 months from the date of the order i.e. 28.03.2018
, unless the same is extended by a speaking order. Further, the judgment casts a responsibility on the court granting stay that 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. Also, in such cases where the stay is extended, the trial court has been directed to fix a date not beyond six months of the order of stay so that on expiry of period of stay, proceedings can commence.
