    Why wouldn't you just write it in Bengali?

    In any case, here it is in the legalistic style of English:

    Sir,

    WHEREAS on this 30th day of March in the Year 2013, we purchased an Air Conditioner,
    I hereby apply for a permit to operate said Air Conditioner, at the address:

    [address]
    [other details].

    I'm not a fan of all this Dickensian stuff, but it probably goes down well with Indian bureaucrats.

    It's probably best if you tabulate the other information:

    Other equipment in regular use:
    Fan heater.........2 Kw
    Refrigerator.......0.1 Kw
    ...etc

    Me neither, I meant my reply to be both technically correct and vaguely flippant.
