There is a problem on a road outside your home.

Write a letter to your local councillor. In your letter

  • Introduce yourself
  • Explain what the problem is
  • tell the councillor what you would like to be done


Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Dipankar Banerjee from Ward No. 57 residing in Lane No. 5, Prabhat Road. I am writing this letter to draw your kind attention to the inconveniences caused by potholes on the road in our locality.

Since last election season, nobody has 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 way to big potholes. These potholes on busy road results in a 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 the 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 a perpetual problem.

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,

Dipankar Banerjee
