As per Section 19 (3) when any order is passed by State Information Commission (SIC) for the PIO and First Appellate Authority (FAA) is liable/ obliged to provide the information. Which ever authority holds the requested information should provide the same within stipulated time as per the RTI Act 2005. If the post of PIO is vacant there will be some officer in charge or Assistant Public Information Officer (APIO) must receive reply/information from concerned Department and provide it to Applicant.
If the information is not provided even after the order passed by the SIC, the applicant can file File application to SIC for contempt or file a suit in the respective High Court of the state concerned.

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.
