‘ in limbo’

Things are ‘in limbo’ means that things are in an uncertain state. It can also mean that things are in a state of neglect.

Examples:  Unless the Supreme Court gives its verdict, the various projects will continue to be in limbo. * The Manager kept Lavanya’s promotion in limbo for months.
