You have filed a case of content of court over a party and the same is showing now defect. It means your case is kept in defect just want of some document. In your case some required document is not attached with your file which is now required.

'Defect' status means that the contempt petition you have filed have some errors or mistakes, which the registry must have pointed out. The Registry provides 2 weeks time to remove the defects and if that is not done, then your case is listed before Hon'ble Court but the Hon'ble Judge won't listen to the arguments until the defects are removed. Hon'ble Judge will give you 1 or 2 weeks time to remove the defects if that is not done than your petition will be dismissed on the ground of not removing the defects.
