1. Has any stay on execution of he preliminary decree has been obtained by the other side?

2. If no, then file an execution petition to that effect.

3. If yes, then make mention for hearing the appeal before the appellate court and get the matter hard and decided at the earlist.

1. You have already availed the preliminary decree.

2. If there is no stay on it, file an execution petition for executing the decree and act as suggested in my earlier post.

Though the opponents have preferred an appeal before the district court, you may challenge the same as per law.
You have to put pressure before court for an expeditious hearing of the appeal pending before it in the next date of hearing. You can ask your lawyer that why he is not pressurizing the court for an expeditious trial.

advise me what course of action to be taken by me for early solution on the above matter and get my right legally.

If there is an inordinate delay in disposal of the appeal case, you may aproach high court for an expeditious disposal of the same.

Has the DJ ordered a stay on the preliminary decree's execution and further proceedings in the trial court? If the stay has been ordered by the District Judge then you can apply to the court to vacate the stay as the appellants are not appearing in the court and thereby delaying the disposal of the appeal,
