Sample complaint letter to the development officer of your block requesting for improvement of irrigation and drinking water facility in your area.

To

The Development Officer

Block Name

Subject: Facility for drinking water and irrigation.

Sir,

We, the villagers of ……………… (name) and ………………, have the honour to draw your attention to our regular suffering in the matter of getting water for drinking and irrigation purpose and request you for an early redressal.

That the two villages, mentioned above, are situated only one kilometer away from the ……………………………… (sea/river name). The villagers completely depend upon natural rain for their farming. They get their drinking water from their private wells. But in last two to three years, unfortunate monsoon failure and scanty rain have put us into immense trouble. The impact of the sea, which is very close, makes the land saline and infertile. The drinking water is getting remote day by day. As all the villagers are poop farmers, there is little possibility of improving the situation on their private efforts. They would surely meet the cruel fate of extermination unless government takes initiative, to improve their lot.

We pray you to send a team of experts to inspect the situation and prescribe effective measures to redress our misery. We shall be grateful to your help.

Yours faithfully,

……………………………………………… (Head of the Village)
