letter 6

  1. Write a Formal Letter to your Municipal Corporation in about 300 words complaining about the state of roads in your area and the lack of street lights there.
B-515, Royal Ensign,                                                                  Sector-64, Ashok Vihar,  New Delhi, Delhi – 110052.        23rd July 2015

Mr K. K. Dahiya
Director (Personnel) – South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC)
Palika Bazar, Connaught Place
New Delhi, Delhi -110056
I, Ankita Vasudha, am a resident of Ashok Vihar. This letter is to draw the attention of the SDMC to the pathetic condition of roads in Ashok Vihar.  The stretch between sector 64 and sector 125 has been in a very poor state since the last 6 months. This stretch, which is one of the busiest roads in New Delhi, also lacks street lighting.
The onset of the monsoon has only worsened the situation. There are huge potholes on this road which along with zero maintenance of this stretch leads to huge traffic jams during the peak hours. Needless to say, the damage it causes to the vehicles plying on this road is costing the citizens heavily. Almost every other day, a vehicle is punctured or dented or it gets stuck. Lack of proper lighting only adds to the misery of the people. The number of accidents occurring here has also gone up significantly.
Further, it has become very difficult for the pedestrians to walk along this road due to the fact that the vehicles including company buses, cabs and cars tend to avoid the potholes and drive along the sides of the roads, where pedestrians tend to walk because of the lack of proper footpaths.
These conditions have caused a lot of inconvenience to the residents of this area as well as commuters.
Keeping the above in view, I hope that the SDMC will initiate expeditious steps to ensure the repairing of this road with proper lighting.
Thanking you.
Yours faithfully,
Ankita Vasudha.
2. Write a Formal Letter to the Principal requesting him to increase security for women in the college.

The Principal, St. Xavier’s College,
Subject: Request for increasing security for women in college
Dear Sir,
I, the undersigned, am writing this letter to you to request you to hike the security for women in the college. I am a student of your institution and am pursuing Economics. I am voicing out such a concern on behalf of all the other female students of the college.
Given the current scenario in the Indian diaspora and numerous untoward incidents that are being reported almost daily, I believe that women’s security is an issue that needs to be tackled effectively at the earliest. Most of the female students in the campus travel from faraway suburban areas and often stay back in the college campus even after the lectures are over because they participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities. As such, it is imperative that the surveillance be increased for women in the college lest we face undesirable consequences.
This is why I earnestly request you to take some action as soon as possible. I would be highly obliged if you would do the needful and heighten the security in and around the college campus for all the females. I thank you in anticipation.
Yours truly,
Sanaya Sinha.

Subject: Increasing noise pollution in the city

Respected Sir,
With reference to the article published in your newspaper on 8 December 2016 regarding health problems resulting from noise pollution I, ABCXYZ resident of ABC Colony, would like to draw the attention of people to the same. The fact that noise pollution causes both physical as well as mental harm is known to all but still fails to grab public efforts in reducing the same.
Noise levels exceeding 90 db. are believed to constitute to noise pollution. Persistent exposure to noise pollution leads to hypertension, cardiac problems, high stress levels, sleep disturbance, irritation, lack of patience along with other psychological disorders. It can even lead to hearing loss, temporary as well as permanent. It is very disheartening to see the elderly suffer in this quagmire.
Honking horns continuously will not lead to lesser traffic jams but only aggravate the irritation caused by the same. Blaring music in cars, events etc. is sure to fetch you merry times but as responsible citizens we must ensure that it doesn’t become gloomy for others. Owing to the detrimental effects noise causes to our health it becomes our duty to join hands for a better environment.
Through the esteemed column of your newspaper I would like to reach out to the authorities concerned so that an action plan can be drawn out and appropriate measures can be adopted. The need of the hour is the formulation of laws and their strict implementation. At the end of the day, what matters is to evoke efforts among public and develop a civic sense.
Thanking You
Yours truly
(A concerned citizen)
