    will not allow/will give - Active to Passive voice

    1. He said, "He will not allow all the time."

    He told that he would not allow all the time.

    2. He said, "He will give all the comments tomorrow."

    He told that he would give all the comments the next day.

    Are the above Direct / Indirect speech sentences grammatically correct?

    No. Why do you want to change them to the passive?

    1 does not make much sense anyway and both are incorrectly punctuated.

    Re: will not allow/will give - Active to Passive voice

    Sorry, Direct to In-direct speech, I want to send an email to my Manager as below:

    1. Regarding my sick leave, Raju informed me that he could not allow all the time.
    2. I spoke to Mr Sanjay and who informed me that he would give all the comments the next day.

    Could you please check it now?

    Give all what comments? Do you mean he would explain why you cannot have all the time off you asked for? But why is Mr. Sanjay doing this when it is Raju who apparently is making the rules.
    Your use of 'could' and 'would' is right.

    Re: will not allow/will give - Active to Passive voice

    I Submitted one drawing to my design consultant for review and approval. I was waiting for his comments.

    No, In #1, my doubt was in the second part, I just added first part to make the sentence meaningful.

    Both are from different topic, I just wanted to know that whether the indirect speech sentences are correct.

    Thanks for the corrections.
