The time frame fixed for first appeal as per Sec.19  is thirty days from date of receipt of RTI Applications.

Ex:  Application was filed on 1st Oct, 2019

If there is no response from PIO 30 days from likely receipt Plus 5 days postal transit. 6th Nov, 2019. (deemed denial of information)

O R

If PIO has response received on 28th Oct, 2019, 30 days from 28th Oct, 2019, first appeal has to be filed  before 28th Nov, 2019.

This is not fixed, and First Appellate Authority can also condone the delay for valid reasons.

In your case wait for 30 days from date of PIO response, as PIO has assured for information.  FIle first appeal within 30 days after receiving such response.

There is no such rule.  PIO may provide such information within 30 days, and for that information which he wishes to provide he may not collect charges.  Experts in the forum advised that getting information as expeditiously as possible must be the focus of citizen.  Those, who are regularly on this job of seeking information under RTI are aware that very few PIOs care to provide information and most of the times it is a deemed denial and they may respond after first appeal.

Atleast, there is a commitment from PIO that information will be provided within four weeks and is committed to providing information.  Appreciate his good spirit, and never believe that such RTI stipulations are of any use or remedy to common men.  It is ultimately the PIO that has to provide the information, here is one PIO who committed to provide information and mentioned time frame.  Respect his commitment.

(There are appellants who never received response even after three years of appeals to Commissions.  Even if you appeal you have to wait for some more years, and the chances of IC penalizing such PIOs are very , very rare.  Such actions against PIO is possible only if there is deliberate and malafide denials.)
