What is Demi Official Letter?

A Demi official letter or D.O. letter is not strictly official. It is written in connection with an official matter, but it draws the personal attention of the officer. Hence it is always written to a person by name with his designation and not merely in recognition of his official capacity. Such Demi official letters contain a personal touch and often help expedite official work and remove bottlenecks. Here are some specimens of Demi official or D.O. letters.
