    RTI reply time limit


    Are the 30days time for replying to a query inclusive of vacations/holidays? I had filed one with a college which is in vacation now. But my query has been passed much b4 the vacation had started. Can I file my first appeal after 30 days of receipt without taking the vacations under consideration?

    I trust the mandated time period does not take into account any vacations etc. By the way, even during vacations the office of the college functions normally, i suppose. All said and done, once an application has been received in a Govt College, it is the responsiblity of their PIO to arrange for timely reply. Otherwise, I feel one can always go for the first appeal to the appellate authority.

    PS... The moderators on this forum are quite learned souls --- I find their replies are extremely helpful to the people. I am just replying just to break the ice !!

    Dear Member

    a. RTI procedure is :Time limits specified in the RTI Act - RTI Guide
    1. RTI Application with Fee to PIO
    2. If no reply/ not satisfied with reply in 30 (or 35 days in case of submission to APIO or under Section 6(3)),
    First Appeal to the First Appellate Authority (normally a officer higher than the PIO)
    3. If no reply/ not satisfied with reply in 45 days to the First Appeal, then Second Appeal to the CIC/SIC (time period is 90 days)

    b. Just count 30 calendar days for PIO (to reply) and add another 5 to 10 days for postal delays and in case of no reply file first appeal.

    c. For help in framing your first appeal, please see:

    If you made a online RTI application seeking information, did you pay the prescribed application fees ? How ?

    The 30 day period will start from the day the online application is received, BUT you will only be given the information after the fees are received.

    I think the clock starts ticking when both fee and the application are received by the PIO. If fee is paid later the 30 days period will be reckoned from the date of receipt of the fee, irrespective of the date on which the RTI application was filed.

    If no reply is received within 30 days from the date of receipt of the complete (application and the fee) application for information, a First Appeal can be filed within 30 days thereafter.
