SAMPLE FORMAL LETTER

Question: You are Saurabh Srivastava, a resident of Defence Colony Bagdogra, Siliguri.

Your colony is facing the severe problem of supply of inadequate and poor

quality of tap water. You decide to express your views and make the

authorities aware of the situation by writing a letter to the Editor of The

Siliguri Times, Siliguri. Write your letter in about 150 words.

Dear Sir

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Subject: Inadequate and bad quality of water supply.

Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to draw the attention

of the civic authorities to the bad quality and inadequate supply of tap water in our

locality.

It is unfortunate that the local civic authorities do not take care to provide the citizens

with even the basic amenities such as proper and adequate water supply. In our

locality, water is supplied only for three hours in the morning. For the rest of the day

the taps remain dry. Also, the quality of supplied water is poor. It is unhygienic and

contaminated. There have been cases of water borne diseases like diarrhoea and

dysentery. It is highly expected that these diseases may break out in form of epidemic

if the problem is not properly addressed.

It is expected that instead of ignoring the issue, the authorities concerned will take

immediate steps to ensure supply of adequate and good quality of water in our

locality so that we citizens are able to live a disease free and stress free life.

Yours faithfully,

Saurabh Srivastava
