How to write a letter to bank manager for locker facility?


A banking letter, very much like business letters or other professional letters, is not a place to write long, tiresome essays. Hence, always be brief and to the point. Remember, brevity is the soul of wit. Avoid jargons and bombastic phrasings, known as Johnsonese in the English language. Businesslike English, nay any language, should always be brief yet clear and compelling.

The vast place called the web world produces various fruits. Somewhere I was reading a model bank locker application letter where the author was informing the good-self that under certain compelling circumstances he was in need of a locker. He was ready to be highly obliged if the manager would very kindly favour.

With full respect to the author, I am not going in any debate whether such English is good or bad. It is just archaic or outdated in today's fast-paced business world. A businesslike letter offers more clarity, faster.

Moreover, your tone should be polite and formal. While you should not write "Listen buddy, got something to tell ya", you do not have to stoop a lot too while writing any business letter, including an application letter to bank manager requesting locker facility. You will see a lot of older people writing that way. This is probably a colonial hangover; such stooping modesty was required by "native" Indians when most of the officials were British. Not any more.
