APPLICATION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME: Whether an applicant applying for extension of time must satisfy the court that there are good and substantial reasons for failing to comply with the mandatory provisions of the rules of court
"It is also beyond doubt that an application for extension of time, as in the case, is not automatic. It is not granted as a matter of course. Such application requires that the court exercises its discretion judicially and judiciously. Any applicant seeking the indulgence of such discretion of the court must satisfy the court in its affidavit in support of the motion, that there are good and substantial reasons for the failure to comply with the mandatory provisions of the Rules of this Court."
