1. In my opinion, supreme court has not gone into the details of the case especially when it was not approached for an appeal against the pending RFA. The party has approached supreme court against the aggrieved orders by high court which has not granted stay, therefore on that basis i.e., pending RFA supreme court has passed the orders for staying the operation of the trial court judgment, thus it cannot be said that the supreme court has gone into any merits of the case.
2. Yes of course, the burden is on the appellant who filed the RFA for disposal of the same expeditiously.
3. May be with a bad intention to drag on the case and not o allow you to avail the benefits of the trial court judgment.
4. Read the second answer above.
5. If there is no time limit mentioned then you may not be able claim any such thing however you can safely say that the limitation is 6 months only becasue the latest supreme court judgment speaks that any stay should not be for more than 6 months, the courts concerned ar to take action after completion of 6 months period of stay.
6. Here the admission means taking the case on file, then only it can be disposed as per the merits of the case.
