    urgent

    please help me check this application to my hod.


    Mr. ABC
    PQR college.

    Subject: Request for increase in the limits of library books.

    Sir
    The current library limit for the faculty is 10 books. As I am pursuing “further studies”, also I need books for the subject, I am teaching; this limit is insufficient for me. I request you to please permit me to get 15 books issued.
    Thanks in advance for your consideration.

    Regards
    XYZ

    rajni,

    I made several changes to your request letter as it should be succinct and simply state what the problem is and what you would like done about it. Your letter is formal and polite which is very important when making a request.

    sir, will it be right to say, the limit is insufficient?, as the limit is for everybody.

    Both would be understood but I would still say "the limit is insufficient for me" Your letter is telling the reader that you need more books for your particular situation. The limit may be sufficient for other people so you don't want to the person to think that you are requesting change the book limit policy for everyone. That would be an impolite suggestion for a request letter.

    It is correct to say the limit is insufficient but your reader could possibly misinterpret your intentions.
