The First and Second Appeal under RTI Act 2005 are the subsequent steps after filing of the RTI application. Specifically First Appeal (FA) is filed under section 19 (1) RTI Act, 2005 when there is no response from the PIO within 30 to 45 days from the date of the application filed or when the applicant is not satisfied with the response provided by the PIO . The FA should be filed within 60 days of receiving the response from the PIO or no response.

Second appeal (SA) is filed under Section 19(3) of the RTI when there is No Order passed from the First Appellate Authority (FAA) or the Order passed by the FAA is not satisfactory. The SA can / should be filed within 90 days of from the date on which the Decision / Order for FA should have been made or was actually received.

I filed a second appeal after 34 days of filing first appeal after receiving no response. But my second appeal was returned for having filed "prematurely" and I am asked to file again after 45 days are over despite having mentioned it was urgent. I thought you could file second appeal as soon as 30 days have passed after filing first appeal. Is there any such rule?
