Letter to the postmaster general for providing a post office in your village
The Postmaster General
GPO, Kolkata 700 001
Sub: Providing a Branch Post Office
We, the inhabitants of …………………………(Village Name) beg to draw your kind notice to the distressing fact that there is no post office within the radius of five kilometers of our village.
The village under reference with a population of more than three thousand, if one includes the surrounding villages, needs a post office of its own. The area is predominantly inhabited by a fairly literate middle class. The number of outgoing letters amounts to some one hundred a day and the incoming letters are almost the same. At the end of every month, more than three hundred money orders are received by the villagers. Thus a post office in this area is urgently needed.
Under such circumstances, we request you to take necessary action in the matter so that a Branch Post Office may be opened in our village at an early date.
