Mostly complaints suffer delays due to the above-mentioned reasons on part of the citizens. Therefore, the citizens are advised to do the needful for the efficient resolution of their complaints.


The system assigns a minimum of 20 days and maximum 41 days default timelines to every complaint from the day of its first arrival to a Government entity. The Organizations are bound to resolve complaints within the assigned timeframe; however, they can be prioritized keeping in view the urgency of the matter.

A complaint may possibly take a longer time in resolution if it involves the role of two or more organizations or having vague contents that need clarification on part of the citizen or some additional information required. For a tangible outcome, the citizen has to wait till completion of the assigned timelines (i.e. 20 days) while in the meantime;

he/she will be kept updated regarding all processing stages of the complaint. The assigned timelines (20-41 days) do not guarantee resolution of your complaint rather it is the nature of your complaint that will determine the resolution timelines. It is however assured that an appropriate response will be provided.
