Letter: Model Letter of Complaint

Spenta House
Splendid Nagar

20 February, 2010.
The Municipal Chairman
Municipality of Hyderabad


I am a resident of Splendid Nagar, Hyderabad and I wish to bring to your attention a grievous problem faced by the residents of my locality.
There are only five buses plying in the route 255 from Splendid Nagar to Glamour Street Cross Roads which is not adequate for this busy route. The inadequate number of buses in this route is causing dire difficulties to the residents of the Splendid Nagar as they solely depend on the buses in this route to arrive at Glamour Street Cross Roads, a centre of educational institutions and business center.
The students from our locality find it difficult to reach in time at their school or college. Moreover, the lack of sufficient buses in the evening makes them return home only after the nightfall. This not only a security risks for them because of the wanton antisocial elements but also a grave cause of anxiety to their parents.
A large number of people from Splendid Nagar work in the business firms in the Glamour Street Cross Roads. The insufficient bus facilities are a nightmare to them as they are often late to their job and are late back home. Recently one my friends had an interview at EduSolutions Pvt Ltd at Glamour Street Cross Roads and he could not arrive in time for the interview because of underprovided bus facility in the route.
I can present a number of similar incidents where the Splendid Nagar residents have undergone enormous misery due to this poor bus facility in the route 255 from Splendid Nagar to Glamour Street Cross Roads.
I humbly request you to look into this grave problem faced by us and take the necessary steps to mitigate our misery by introducing sufficient number of buses in the route 255 from Splendid Nagar to Glamour Street Cross Roads.

Yours faithfully,
Spenta Roy
