The date is valid from the date of receiving the letter.

tender a reply to them that you have received the letter on 28.10 and therefore within two months from today you will settle the dues.

Ideally it has to be from date of receipt

Before physically receiving the letter, how can one know the compliance period

Also check the letter for what is stated - whether it asks to comply from date of letter OR from date of receipt of letter OR from date of letter or receipt, whichever is earlier

Its quite evident that the compliance will have to be counted from date of receipt, because its already been more than 2 months since the date of letter, and the agent has not yet taken any further steps against the trust

You must reply to the letter without any delay though, specifying the date of receipt of letter

The time will begin from the date of receipt of notice.

If the receipt of notice had been acknowledged with date endorsed in it, then you are safe about it.
