Hello Srini,

with default timers HSRP should converge in up to 10 seconds (three missed hellos from active router)

the same should happen for VRRP.

About STP:

if using uplinkfast the time is just the time to start to use the alternate uplink + the time to detect that the primary link failed.

by the way STP has to react faster then HSRP/VRRP

Hope to help
