Just for information sake:
Showed my application of adjournment to a couple of Advocates in my district and they gave a green light to the application. And the answer to the above questions:
No need to make the application under any rule or section.
Need Rs 10 stamps only. No affidavit required.
No need to include the List of Documents form to annex documents.
Yes, give a copy to the opponent.
Here is the format I used for a Punjab district court. It’s on legal size paper, size 14 font, Times New Roman, double spaced with margins 1.26" on top and bottom and 1. 65" on left and 1.05" on the right. I personally feel margins/font does not matter as long as ur application/petition looks somewhat similar to the templates from other Advocates.
