You have to file the written statement with a petition to condone delay. The 90 days period has to be calculated from the date on which the publication appeared in the newspaper. The delay has to be reckoned only from that date on which the 90 day period expires.

90 days started from the date of knowledge and you can also exclude vacation days.

If sufficient cause is shown the delay is usually condoned by the courts. Even an application with the w/s is normally filed within 90 days. Date of knowledge is the cause and the days of holidays are to be excluded
