TELEGRAM WRITING
When there is requirement of sending a message faster than a normal letter, we send a telegram. It is sent using coded signals and reaches its destination within a few hours. It is a very concise message.
Format:
INDIAN POST AND TELEGRAPH
ADDRESS OF
THE ADDRESSEE

NAME
: …………………..............
ADDRESS
: …………………..............
TELEGRAPH OFFICE : …………………..............
MESSAGE
SENDER’S NAME AND ADDRESS:
(NOT TO BE TELEGRAPHED)

Points to remember:

Use minimum number of words while writing the address and the message.

Payment is made as per the number of words used in the telegram. Sender’s name and address is not paid for.

Only capital letters are to be used except in the column ‘Not to be telegraphed’. •
Punctuation marks are not to be used. Write ‘Stop’ where a full stop has to be used.

Avoid using words like ‘Mr’ or ‘Shri’.

Write the message briefly. Do not worry about grammatical errors.

In the space marked ‘Senders name’ you should write the name in one word.
In case of an official telegram, the designation of the sender and the name of the company should be given.

Numerals are not used in the telegram. For 10 pm, you should write Ten Night.

No column should be left blank.

Only the actual message and the sender’s name are counted in the word limit.

One mark is deducted if the student fails to copy the proper layout.
