Supreme Court observed a plain reading of that Section 148 Code of Civil Procedure would show that when any period or time is granted by the court for doing any act, the court has the discretion from time to time to enlarge such period even if the time originally fixed or granted by the court has expired. Previously discretion was given to the court to enlarge the period fixed or granted by the court for any act prescribed or allowed by the Code. The Code of Civil Procedure (Amendment) Act, 1999 puts a limit of thirty days on the enlargement of such period.
