    Re: Demand raised

    I think it is not a sentence.
    I am not a teacher.

    I think you're still trying to construct sentences which are beyond your level.

    A demand for Rs 20,000 has been raised for the delay in the deposit of taxes [owed].
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Demand raised

    I would either go with Emsr2d2's correction, or possibly a variation of it like this.

    "A demand for Rs 20,000 has been raised for late payment of tax owed."

    Can we use "delaying" in place of "the delay"?

    My 2nd doubt is which don't make much sense but just to clear my doubt:

    Why can't we write: A demand of Rs. 20,000 raised for the delay in deposit of taxes. (without "has been" before "raised"). As we write: He left, He woke up etc . Similarly: A demand of Rs 20,000 raised......

    The demand was raised by somebody. It didn't raise itself.
