General Application Letter
Regardless of whether you want to modify the status of your bank account, apply for a job or even buy a car, you will have to submit an application letter to the concerned authority before moving ahead. It is a common and widely accepted formality as it represents your intent and provides them with a physical, hard proof that such a request was submitted and attended to by the company or bank.
A General Application Letter is a simple formal letter, which expresses your request for a particular activity. Such a letter must adhere to the format of a formal letter and must be professional in its wording and tone. The letter must clearly express the intent of the applicant, supplying all the necessary details and documents along with the letter. The writer must take care to avoid any errors as it can be counter-intuitive to the application being approved.
The following is a sample of a General Application Letter.
