  2. It's nice. But I have a doubt if the address needs to be written on the left hand side.

  3. Dear Swamynathan,
    the address will be written in the left side only in the BOX Format or the Modern Format.
    I have given the traditional format. Better to follow the traditional format which we are used to.
    Caution: Always follow any one, either the traditional or the modern, format. Never mix the formats and land in trouble.

  16. 'There is no New Format or Old Format. There are only three formats: Intended Format, Block Format, and entirely on the Left Side Format.'

    Well! Well! Well! There is no such thing as 'intended' format. There is of course 'INDENTED' layout.
