Classification of the document


FUNCTIONAL APPROACH TO NOTINGS

Most of the cases dealt with in Government of India can be divided into the
following five categories:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Planning and Policy (Strategic or Operational) cases


Problem solving cases (i.e. those that require examination of issues)
Correspondence handling (matters relating to simple situation)
Routine/Respective
Unnecessary

The following guidelines are given for dealing with noting on the above five
categories of cases:
A.

Planning and Policy cases


These would form a very small number in a Section and require a
thorough examination. The questions that may have to be asked will be as
follows:

Purpose:
i.
ii.
iii.

What is the problem?


Who is the originator? Is it worth a detailed examination? Are you the
authority who can solve it? If it is another, you should give helpful and
positive guidance.
Can it be broken up into parts? Which are the major ones and which are
only subsidiary? Identify critical factors.

Sequence:
iv.
v.
vi.
vii.

What are the priorities for solution and which should you choose first?
What is the origin of the problem - political, psychological, human,
sociological or administrative?
What is the background or cause of the problem? How has it arisen?
Is it ripe enough for a solution? Can it be modified?

Data:
viii. If more information is essential for a solution, you can prepare a pro forma
for all required data.
- Dont ask for information piecemeal. Ask for all details which are both
necessary and sufficient.
ix.
If the problem is to be solved, what is the Rule position?
Solution:
x.

Are there any precedents to ensure even-handed treatment or to avoid


repetition of past mistakes.
- Find out whether the proposal had earlier been considered and rejected.
If so, find out whether any new grounds have been advanced for
reconsideration.
xi.
What are the possible alternative solutions?
xii. Which is the best solution? Why?
xiii. What will be the consequences on the totality of the situation?
In preparing a detailed note for consideration at the top management level follow
the hints given preparing summary or statement of case for Minister given in
Para 7.
B.

Problem solving cases:

In these cases, a short para in respect of each of the following questions would
suffice:
i.
ii.
iii.
iv.
v.
vi.

What is the problem?


How has it arisen?
What is the Rule, Policy or Precedent position?
What are the possible solutions?
Which is the best solution? Why?
What will be the consequences of the proposed solution?

C.

Correspondence handling cases:


These do not require any detailed noting, It would suffice if a brief note,
as indicated below, is recorded
This is in reply tour letter at S. No.In brief the
point is.A reply as in the DFA is put up.

D.

Routine/Repetitive cases:
In respect of these cases, A standard Process Sheet which means a
standard skeleton note developed for a repetitive item of work indicating
pre-determined points of check or aspects to be noted upon should be
used. In non-repetitive cases, a fair draft should be put up without any
noting.

E.

Unnecessary cases:
These should be filed at the dak stage itself by the Section officer or desk
functionary recording in brief the reasons why no action is necessary.
They should be kept in File O bundle, i.e. cases to be kept wit the
Daftary and destroyed on 31st December of every year.

What should be the recipient response?
Does the language convey?
Has the referencing been done?
Is it logically sequenced?

Does it have proper urgency, security grading?

FORMS OF COMMUNICATION
The specimens of different forms of communication generally used by various
functionaries of the Government of India, are given here-in-below. A particular form of
communication is adopted for a specific purpose with a specific target group to be
addressed. Each form has a use and, in some cases, phraseology of its own. Only black
or blue ink will be used in communications. A small margin of about one inch will be
left on all sides (left, right, top and bottom) of each page of communications to ensure
better preservations of records as at times the paper gets tom from the edges, making
reading of the documents difficult.

Sub: Posting of JWM/Asstt Foreman
OFIL KN is catering the training needs of all Group B and C employees of
North Zone Ordnance Factories besides other Factories & Allied Establishments. At
present this Institute is facing lot of inconveniences due to deficient strength of Faculty
Members.

OFIL KN has the sanctioned strength of 9 JWMs & 7 Asstt Foremen. At present

against the above sanctioned strength, only 8 JWMs and 1 Asstt Foreman is posted to
this Unit. Further, one JWM namely Shri .. is going be retire in this
month which will further reduce the strength of JWMs.
03.

Keeping in view the depleting strength of JWM/AF, it is submitted that we may

approach OFB through a DO letter from PD/OFIL KN to Member/Per, OFB for


posting of 2 JWMs and atleast 4 Asstt Foremen who are having teaching interest and

can pick up the faculty work and other miscellaneous work being looked after by them.
I would therefore like to request you to kindly look into the matter and favour
this OFIL by posting JWMs and AFs preferably having teaching interest with good
academic background at the earliest so that the activities of this unit are taken care of in
an effective manner and depleted manpower may not be a hurdle in smooth functioning
of this unit.

Friendly Letters

To receive a letter from or to write one to a friend is a matter of special pleasure.


A true friend is more than a brother. Friendly letters are also hoops. Friendship is a
peculiar gift granted only to men by God.
Dear Amit,
Yesterday, I received a letter from my uncle Bharat Bhushan, from Australia.
You know how he loves you. He has asked me so may questions about you that it
reminded me I hadnt written you for the last fortnight or so, nor have I received any
letter from you. Have you forgotten me? If I remember correctly, you didnt reply my
last letter. Whats wrong with you?
Uncle Bhushan has sent a very nice present for you from Australia. Can you
guess what it can be? I think I should not reveal it. I shall send it after your reply so as
to make sure that you are there at the present address. I am sending your address to
uncle, and he may write you directly.
The other day, I met Saurabh Bajaj, whose sisters marriage has been fixed and
she would be married soon. He has asked me to say you hello! on his behalf. She
will invite you on her marriage. He was in a hurry and with his maternal uncle.
Therefore, we could not talk much. he has promised to see me day after tomorrow.
Papa and mummy send their love and hope that you all are well. Please reply
immediately and give me all the news
Yours Sincerely,

Alok

Family Letters
Letters to and from family are a tonic. A letter of good cheer from someone in
the family can be a great source of solace, inspiration, encouragement and freshness in
these days of dark times. Family letters should incorporate in them the qualities of
sincerity, simplicity, originality and warmth. They should not be a routine affair.
Cultivate the habit of writing lively and interestingly family letters.

Dear Rahul,
Your long and ominous silence has puzzled all of us. You have never been before
so tardy in writing about yourself to us. Why so much delay? We have written you
three letters in succession during the past fortnight but without any reply.
My son, are you not well, or are you in some trouble? We hope there is nothing
to worry about. Your mother and sister are very worried to know about your well-being
and therefore, anxious to come to you. In case you dont reply by returned post, I will
have to escort them to you.
Write immediately and let us know why this silence? Whats the matter? You
need not hide anything from us. If there is any problem we can certainly help you out.
If it is because of your sheer laziness, cast it away at once and do write promptly, or
come over here at the earliest.
My dear Rahul, you dont know how thirsty we are to receive the good news
from your end.
Reply soon. With our blessings,

Yours Papa

Letter to the Editor


The power of the press as a mass media in a democratic county like India is well known.
Letters to the editor is very popular means to give vent to ones feelings on a current topic of general
interest or to draw the attention of the concerned authorities to some matter, or to make the public
opinion against or in favour of one thing or the other. In every daily newspaper and other periodical
magazines letters of the readers are published. These letters are on topical subjects in which a large
majority of the readers take interest.
Such a letter should always be brief, lively, logical, convincing, interesting and of some
literary merit. Every day hundreds of letters are received by the editors, but only those letters which
are significant, on contemporary vital issues and readable see the light of publication in the columns
meant for this purpose. It is not necessary that a letter should agree with the editor, but the
disagreement must be within the limits.

KANPUR-208 011
To
The Editor,
The Times of India,
The Mall,
KANPUR-208 001
Will you very kindly give a little place to my letter in your esteemed and highly popular paper?
I write to you to put forward the difficulties which the public has to face due to frequent break
down of water supply in the locality Barra-7, Kanpur. We are in a very difficult situation. The
rainy season is already on. The Ganga is full of water. So, there is no problem of electric power.
I fail to understand the causes of the frequent break down of water supply. We have not got even
a single drop of water for the last two days. None can know the difficulties we have faced these
days. In my opinion the break down is due to the inefficient working of the water supply
department.

Will you very kindly publish my letter in you paper so that the higher authorities may come to
know of it and warn those who are responsible for it?

Yours sincerely,

Sir,

Over population is one of the greatest problems our country has been facing. It is
high time that we do something to curb the growth rate of our population today and
now, otherwise, tomorrow may be too late. Let us take the problem seriously to reduce
our population to the manageable proportion. Sterilization, use of contraceptives and
late marriages should be encouraged. A nationwide door to door campaign is the need
of the hour to educate the masses in this connection. The mass media should also take
up the issue on war footing.
Offering of economic and other incentives to the govt. employees and the public
in general should be a welcome step. In consideration of allotment of quarters, flats,
building loans, promotions, the size of the family may also be taken into consideration.
There are many myths regarding the large population. One of these is that a large
population is needed to fight and win a modern war. We should not overlook the hard
fact that wars are fought and won with mind, machines and not muscles. Militarily
most advanced countries like America and Russia have a controlled and thin
population. The over population creates problems regarding supplies, civil defence,
morale and discipline during the war. In the context of possible atomic war, the number
of heads becomes quite meaningless.
Moreover may other serious problems like unemployment, food, heath, housing
are the direct result of over population. We should not hesitate even if we have to take

some drastic steps in this direction. Special measures have to be devised to achieve the
desired results.
