      Hello All
      To the Municipal Corporation (Parks and Gardens)
      I had written the application under the RTI Act dated 27/03/2008, and recieved the reply dated 25/04/2008.
      I had filed for my 1st Appeal dated 23/05/2008 which is within 30 days from reciept of the Reply.
      Yesterday on 27/06/2008 I recieved a letter from the department that they had recieved my Appel Letter on 28/05/2008 and my appeal letter shall not be considered. as it has not reached them on time.
      my question is as i have replied within 30 days of reciept of their reply am i responsible for postal delays.
      my case has been going on for nearly since 1 year now with this department and every time they play some type of trick to avoid giving me information i have still 1 case pending with the state commision.
      Regards
