Q.Contempt of court proceedings against a builder
I have a case against a builder in Delhi Consumer court for not giving possession on time . The case is in the court for last 4 years and the primary reason for the delay is that OP always takes more than 1 year to submit documents when directed by court, be it rejoinder or evidence by way of affidavit or written arguments. Though in every hearing the court stipulates 8 weeks of time but grants them more time if they fail to submit.

1. Can I initiate contempt of court proceedings against the OP for not following court orders of submitting the documents in stipulated time ?
2. The matter is listed for argument in next hearing. What will happen if OP does not submit the written arguments before the next date (I have submitted mine). Will the argument happen or court will make it mandatory for OP to submit written arguments before the court?
3. Can I ask for some compensation is lieu of the delays that have occurred?
