Under Section 7 of the Act, information must be provided by the CPIO to the citizens within 30 days of receipt of the application. The onus is, therefore, on the CPIO to ensure that information is provided within the said time limit. You may, therefore, request the CPIO to provide the information by post and then wait till the prescribed time period is over. If you still do not receive the information, you may then prefer an Appeal to the Appellate Authority.

Alternatively a complaint can also be filed before the CIC against the CPIO direct under Section 18 of the ACT.
