In my opinon memo to condone the delay is not sufficient.  Delay should be explained.  Hence IA along with an affidavit of the appellant is necessary.

Dear Sir, The motive of law is to curb litigation. The person who caused delay, law presumes that he is not victamise from the deal and obstructs to legal recourse. If there is geniune reasons i.e. the victim was unable to move, admitted in Hospital, or other reasons he must be given opportunity to file case beyond limits. Courts considers it in every individual matter. Law needs that there should not be delay and delay causes 'after-thought' matter. Hence it is well in the interest of society to file suit within time.

Simply filing of Delay condonation petiton with an affidavit is also insufficient.  The Court's are considering the grounds of delay for consideration of condonation of delay.   As such, as far as possible, the delay shall be explained with reasonable grounds and also to file proof of such delay if possible basing on the circumstances.   However, the delay in filing for unavoidable circumstances, shall not cause injustice to the needy party.

Dear  Ld Members,

In  a matrimonial case,

a party to case filed an IA ( condone delay petition) with strict proof  to set aside ex parte decree and the court has accepted the same and case is pending.


In this regard, the opposite other party can summon the organisation who gave strict  poof to find out the truth of strict proof, the interest of justice.
