    प्रिय महोदय,
    सविनय निवेदन इस प्रकार है कि हमने गैस के लिए लिए 6 महीने में 2 बार आवेदन किया था परन्तु किसी कारणवश हमारा नाम न आने के कारण हमें गैस प्राप्त नहीं हुआ है हमने इससे पहले भी कभी गैस के लिए आवेदन और न ही हमरे घर किसी भी प्रकार का गैस मौजूद है |गैस उपभोक्ता वाले कह रहे हमारा नाम किसी लिस्ट में नही है |
    अत भारत सरकार के नियमनुसार जिस परिवार में पहले से ही गैस उपलब्ध है उनको नही मिलेगा
    एसे में देखा जा रहा है गैस पहले से भी उपलब्ध होने के बाबजूद उनको गैस कनेक्शन दिया जा रहा है
    अत आपसे से विनम्र निवदन है की हमारा परिवार BPL परिवार के अंतर्गत आने के बाबजूद हमें गैस प्राप्त नहीं हुआ है अत हमारे नजदीकी गैस कम्पनी से हमें कोई सहयोग नही मिल प् रहा है इसलिए मैंने सोचा है इस तथ्य आप तक दू |
    मुझे आपकी सहयोग का इंतजार रहेगा
