    With respect, the original letter's "apply for an ATM card" was better. It is clear and to the point.

    "My account no is xxxx."

    Wouldn't "number" better?

    "I shall be grateful, if you could inform me the procedure to apply for the card."

    Would it be better to say "I would be grateful if you could tell me what I should do to apply for an ATM card"?

    'Shall' is fine. It is widely used and considered polite in India.

    'N' is the widely accepted abbreviation.

    Isn't No. correct?

    [C] (abbr. No.) (symb #) used before a figure to show the position of sth in a series: They live at number 26. The song reached number 5 in the charts.
