Letter Writing Class 12 English Assignment


Formal Letters have a variety of purposes. Formal Letters are written to:

• Ask for/give information

• Apply for a job

• Make inquiries

• Register complaints about inadequate goods or services

• Place orders/send appropriate replies

• Apologize for behaviour

• Solicit new customers for grievances

• Persuade others

• Make an appeal for help

• Send a recommendation

However, all of these letters have a common goal, which is to get the results you want from someone you may or may not know personally.



• The formal letter is written in formal language. Try to avoid starting with 'I'. Keep sentence short and to the point. Do not use contractions.

• End with a short sentence that anticipates the response of the addressee.

• The tone in formal letter is polite and impersonal.

• Use passive voice where possible.

• Be brief and to the point; do not beat about the bush.

• Be clear and specific; state the purpose clearly and concisely.

• Be positive and polite even if you are writing a complaint. Remember on the receiving end of your letter is a human being!


Business letters

These include:

(i) Letters of enquiry/asking for information

(ii) Replying to enquiry/giving information

(iii) Placing orders and sending replies

(iv) Cancelling orders

A business letter is the basic means of communication between two companies. It is a document typically sent externally to those outside a company, but is also sent internally to those within a company.

A business letter should be written whenever you need a permanent record that you have sent the information requested for, because business letters are generally sent to other professionals.

A formal salutation and closing must be added.

They are different from personal letters in form, tone and content. Most business letters have a formal tone as opposed to the informal, friendly or personal tone, content and style of the personal letter. The treatment of the subject has to be simple, systematic and formal.

• begin by identifying yourself
• clearly state the purpose of writing
• give relevant details
• make a request for appropriate action
• be positive and polite - even if you are making a complaint
• use polite language and a pleasant tone
• Quote reference numbers, order number, cheque/demand draft number, file numbers, etc.
• convey message briefly and in a straightforward manner

Official Letters
These include:
i. Letters of complaint
ii. Making inquiries
iii. Making requests/appeals
Official letters are written to various public or civil servants who generally head their respective departments, sections, branches or zones.

Important points
• Show due respect but do not flatter or sound too servile
• Clearly state the purpose of writing
• Use polite language and a pleasant tone

Letters to the Editors
These letters give suggestions/create awareness on an issue of public interest or an issue already raised in an article/write-up/published letter.

Important Points
• Begin with reference to the recent development/event/issue
• Give details of the topic bringing out cause-effect relationship
• Offer suggestions/solutions
• Do not ask the editor to solve the problem as he can only voice your views and ideas.

Job Applications
These types of letters demand a very formal and precise treatment. Their format is almost the same as that of the forwarding cover letter and is usually accompanied by a curriculum vitae/ resume. The curriculum vitae/resume ought to include the name, address, name, date of birth, educational qualifications, experience, hobbies, expected salary and signature.

Letter of complaint
Neera Singh is the secretary of Army Apartments C G road, Sagar. The complex subscribes to New Cable Services M G road Sagar. The proprietor Mr. Singh has increased the monthly subscription, but he has done nothing to improve the quality of transmission. The sound is low and unclear, the colours blurred, and the selection of channels limited. She writes a letter complaining about the same.

Sample 1. Write a Letter to the editor of the Hindustan Times complaining against the bursting level of noise pollution in your city

The Editor

Times Nagpur

Sub: Concern over rising level of noise pollution in the City- reg

Sir Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper I wish to draw the attention of the concerned authorities towards the rising noise pollution in our cities.

Despite laws made by the government banning the use of loudspeakers and DJs after a particular time people seem to turn a deaf ear to what the government tells them. Marriage processions till late night in the middle of the cities and DJ’s loud music are all sources of noise which have an adverse effect on older and the ailing members of the society. Students are the main victims especially during examination days. Not only does it affect health of the people but also their behaviour. It causes elements like hypertension, insomnia, sleeplessness, hearing impairment and what not.

It all speaks volumes of well planning on the part of the government rules made must be implemented. It is hoped that this concern if published in your reputed newspaper will awake the authorities from their slumber and the needful will be done at the earliest possible.

Thanking you
Yours faithfully

Subject : Exploitation of children in Urban Society
I want to draw the attention of the general Public and the concerned authorities towards the above cited problem through this letter of mine in your newspaper.
In Urban societies parents are increasingly using their children as means of achieving their own unfulfilled dreams and aspirations, resulting in physical and mental exploitation of the children. Forcing children to participate in reality shows or cajoling them to play roles in TV serials by shunning games are some examples of child exploitation. Even parents among audience of such programmes openly compare their wards with child actors on TV. In school arena parents put pressure on their wards, to excel in the field of
academics, sports and other activities alike without considering their field of interest and abilities.

The implication of exploitation of children in the guise of making their future bright are evident now. The diseases like hypertension, obesity, diabetes which were known to be adult diseases a decade back are common among children. Psychotic problems among children are also rising with cases of drug abuse, depression or even suicide are reported

Authorities in the child’s rights department and educational institutes should come out with bolder steps to curb the problem. There should be ban on all types of advertisements and programmes on TV with child actors below 14 years of age. There should be regular counselling for parents in schools to make them understand the consequences of stressing the children.
Thank You
Yours sincerely

The State Roadways bus does not stop here. There is no bus stop within a radius of 4 km from the village.
The residents have to walk a long distance to take any bus to the city. The students also have to face the same problem. The boys can somehow manage, but for the girl students, it becomes very difficult to reach their schools or colleges. It results in so much needless waste of time and energy. You are requested to take immediate note of this problem of the village. Kindly provide a bus stop near the village, so that no villager has to walk more then 100 metres to catch a bus.

Subject : Chaotic Conditions in the Casualty Department
It pains me to bring to your notice the poor state of casualty department in your hospital.
Last evening, while coming back home from office, I saw a man badly wounded lying on the road.
He had been the victim of a hit-and-run accident. With the help of a passer-by, I took him to your hospital which happened to be the nearest one. But to my dismay, I found there was
complete chaos there and none came forward to attend to the victim. The nurse told me that I would have to wait till the doctor attended to the other patients. But I found that the other patients were also clamouring to be attended. And at last when the doctor came, he asked me if I had informed the police. I was going mad with rage but I restrained my nerves and requested the doctor to attend to the victim first. A lot of precious time was lost in useless arguments and the victim remained crying in pain. Thank God, he was at last attended and his life was saved. Could you please do something to tone up this most important department of your hospital?
Yours sincerely

Question. In all big cities, road rage has become a serious problem. A minor scratch, a little push, or a small brushing past can lead to a scuffle, sometimes resulting even in murder. Write a letter to the Police Commissioner, giving your views on the problem and its solution. You are Karuna / Karan, M 114, Mall Road, Delhi.
Answer: Mall Road
16 May 20_ _
The Police Commissioner
Subject : The Problem of Road Rage
Life today has become very fast. Everybody seems to be in a hurry. Drivers of vehicles use their strength at the accelerator in order to reach their destinations as soon as possible. Due to the fast pace of life and due to many other reasons, people remain under stress all the time. They have become less tolerant. A minor scratch, a little push, or a small brushing past can lead to a dangerous scuffle, sometimes resulting even in murder. It is because of the various stresses under which they live. There is stress due to family issues. There is stress due to work-related issues. And then there is yet another reason. There are no stringent penalties for those who break the traffic rules. In the absence of severe penalties, people ignore traffic rules at their will. The cure of each ill lies in removing the causes. Therefore, we should avoid road rage and be disciplined motorists. We should know traffic rules and be courteous to fellow drivers. If we have an appointment, we should start well in time. We shouldn’t carry any stress while driving. Speed breakers should be built at points that are
more prone to accidents.
