You can send it by post. Once you send it along with the fee, your job is done. You should also make a formal complaint to the respective “Information Commission”. The Information Commissioner has the power to impose a penalty of Rs.25,000 on the concerned PIO officer who refused to accept your application. But it is most likely that the PIO will accept your application.
