    Default Correct Usage ?

    Hi,

    I wanted to know the correct usage of the phrase..
    Is it 'Awaiting your reply' or 'Awaiting for your reply' or 'Waiting for your reply'

    Thanks.

    Parth.

    "Awaiting your reply" and "waiting for your reply" are both correct, the former is more formal and should be used in official or business correspondance. "Awaiting for your reply" is incorrect.
