DEFINITION OF INDENTED STYLE


An indented letter style is a letter-writing style where the paragraphs are indented, and the date,
closing and signature start at the center of the line. The paragraphs are typically indented by half
an inch.
CHARACTERISTICS OF INDENTED STYLE

Indented style is more complicated than other popular styles of business writing.
In indented style, new paragraphs in a piece of writing are indented.
Other parts of a business letter are moved further to the right half of the page.

Mr. John Mark,
152, Bunget Lodge,
23, Jalan Street,
87123 Singapore.

Dear Mr. Mark,


This letter has used the fully indented style. The recipients name and address and the
paragraph of the body of the letter are indented five space. In few cases more space are used. The
typists will decide the space level.
The subject of the letter is types just 2 lines below the salutation at the center. The
difference between 2 paragraphs will be 2 lines.
The complimentary closing is typed at the center 2 lines just below the body of the letter.
The signature is writtter five line-spcaes below the complimentary closing. Although this style
looks beautiful, this style is not widely used these days. Because typing a letter in this style
requires many keyboard strokes, this style is avoided.

Yours Sincerly,

M.K. Khoom,
Managing Director

Dear Mr. English:
The first paragraph of a typical business letter is used to state the main point of the letter. Begin
with a friendly opening; then quickly transition into the purpose of your letter. Use a couple of
sentences to explain the purpose, but do not go in to detail until the next paragraph.
Beginning with the second paragraph, state the supporting details to justify your purpose. These
may take the form of background information, statistics or first-hand accounts. A few short
paragraphs within the body of the letter should be enough to support your reasoning.
Finally, in the closing paragraph, briefly restate your purpose and why it is important. If the
purpose of your letter is employment related, consider ending your letter with your contact
information. However, if the purpose is informational, think about closing with gratitude for the
reader's time.
Sincerely,

Lucy Letter

Mr. John Mark,
152, Bunget Lodge,
23, Jalan Street,
87123 Singapore.
Dear Mr. John Mark,
Hanging-Indented Style
This very useful style places the first words of each paragraph prominently on the page. It is
useful for letters that deal with a variety of different topics. However, for normal business
communications, this style is very rarely used.
The first line of the paragraph begins at the left-hand margin. And the other lines of the same
paragraph are indented three to four spaces. This is the reversal of semi-indented style
discussed in other page.
Yours Sincerely,
Rajan Carpets
