I have posted a Speed Post letter on13th April,2019 . First 9 days upto 22nd there was no tracking result visible after 14th ( movement of letter after the date 14th April,2019). Then I wrote an email to DDG ( PQA) post at Dak Bhavan, then only came the line " bag despatched to the destination S.O ." . This line persisted till 30th April ,2019. The SP letter was not intentionally delivered as the letter was a job application and the last date was 30th April,2019.

Complaint to every higher officials starting from DG(Posts) etc did not yield any result.

Yes, you can file RTI application for the recorded reason for the delay for the delivery of the speed post under section 2 (f) and 6(1) of the RTI Act, 2005. The Department of Posts, trading as India Post, is a government-operated postal system in India, which is part of the Ministry of Communications of the Government of India. Hence it is a Public Authority under section 2 (h) of the RTI Act 2005.
The application must be made to the designated CPIO (Central Public Information Officer) of the concerned circle of the Post office from where the speed post was dispatched. The applicant must provide the acknowledgment number of the speed post, date of dispatch and the requisite fees.
