Stay orders by Lower and High Courts expire in 6 months, unless extended for good reasons: Supreme Court of India

The Supreme Court of India has issued an order on the stay orders that are being passed by high courts or subordinate courts stating that the said orders will expire in 6 months unless there is a good reason for it to extend.

A bench comprising of three judges, headed by Justice Rohinton F Nariman said that as per their judgement, whatever stay order has been permitted by any court, including the high court will automatically expire within a span of 6 months, unless there is any good reason for it to get extended.

The judgement says that in trial courts, after the 6 months time period gets expired, a date will be fixed for trial and accordingly the case will proceed further. It also says that in the year 2013, the Supreme Court had passed a judgement mentioning that if a stay order is passed then the validity of the same will be a period of 6 months if it is not granted further. The order must show an extraordinary reason for extending and its importance to not be finalised but continued.
