Sample Complaint Letter

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Niraj Deobhankar from Ward No. 57 residing in Lane No. 5, Prabhat Road. I am writing this letter to draw your kind attention to the inconvenience caused by pot holes on the road in our locality.

Since last election season, nobody bothered to maintain the road and as result the tar road, which is busy day and night and has sustained heavy monsoons, has worn off to give ways to big pot holes. These pot holes on busy road results in traffic jam. School children find it difficult to cross the road while office-goers need to leave homes early lest they miss office. Senior citizens cannot walk on footpath as impatient bikers hop onto it in evenings.

As a concerned citizen, I urge you to tackle this problem on war-footing and repair the road as early as possible. I am sure my neighbours won’t mind a closed road for a week than suffer for such a long period.

In the context, may I request you to consider the matter out of your busy schedule? I am eagerly waiting for your response. Thanks for your attention to the letter.

Yours faithfully,

Niraj Deobhankar

Solution

The pot holes have made a major part of the road unusable which results in traffic jams. Moreover, school children find it difficult to cross the road while office-goers need to leave homes early lest they miss office.
