    See above. If it's a formal letter, as indicated by "Dear Sir", you need to finish with "Yours faithfully". If you know the name of the person you're writing to, you should use it, and then end with "Yours sincerely" or just "Yours".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I have no idea what that means. I presume it's Indian English.

    Re: Joining time

    I was absolutely certain that I had started my response with "As long as 'joining time' is a recognised term in Indian English and you are writing to someone who speaks that variant, then you can use it". I have no idea where that sentence went. I must have imagined it!
