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.
