There is nothing like response time for not quashing any criminal proceedings as such. Generally after filing of an FIR or a PCR, the accused has right under section 482 of IPC to approach seeking quashing of the fir or PCR proceedings and the high court after rthw admission of the matter issues notices to the complainant and the state (the police station) , upon receipt of the notice the complainant and the state has to appear through their advocate and only after arguments of the both the parties the high court decides to either quash the case or not to quash. in case of Complaint not appearing even after receipt of the notice the high court proceeds to hear the matter in the absence of the complainant and proceeds to write the judgment
