according to the guardians and wards act her petition is not maintainable because it should be filed at Tezpur because child is residing there. you should object on the maintainability of the petition .

The case could have been filed only at Tezpur i.e where the child is residing. You may move the Supreme Court to transfer the petition to Tezpur from Nagpur.

The child custody and access or visitation rights case can be filed at the place where the child is residing.
Even if she is getting a favorable judgment in this case, she may not be able to execute the order since the child is staying far off in a different state.
Sh has to file an execution petition before a court at Tezpur only.
However you can file a strong counter objecting to her petition on the basis of lack of jurisdiction.

If you want to file quash petition, you may file it before Nagpur bench of Mumbai high court.
You have to file an appeal against the non-response in the previous letter seeking information under RTI act.
