  • Write your full name, address and date while writing a notice.
  • A good notice is always to the point and leaves no scope for further enquiries.
  • A notice should be formal.
  • Always make your message clear and direct. But especially as you write to specific individuals, anticipate what that particular reader will want or need to know about you and your request or your information.
  • In other words, remind your reader of the key contextual details that are necessary for your message to make sense and to get you a quick response
  • A telegram should be precise and strictly limited to words.
  • The address in a telegram must be complete.
  • Create an outline before you start to write your paper according to format report writing.
  • You should remember that thoughts and ideas must be structured properly and follow the format of report writing.    






  • A notice should contain all the necessary details such as: Name of the issuing agency (school, etc.), Subject and date of issue/release of the notice, Event (what?), Date/time/duration (when?), Place/Venue (where?), and Authorized signatory: Name and signature.
  • Write the message as if it were being spoken aloud, not read silently.
  • Keep your message brief and to the point.
  • Always write telegram in Capital letters.
  • No punctuation marks are used. A full stop is indicated by any of the following (.), AAA or STOP.
  • The report should be short, generally within about two paragraphs (250 words or so total).  





  • A telegraphic message is written on a specifically designed Performa which has three distinct parts: Address of the addressee, Message and sender's name, and Details of the sender's name (signature and address).
  • Avoid negative phrases like 'we're too busy'. They sound insincere and off- putting.
  • Make the message upbeat and positive.
  • Title and abstract are the most-read parts of a report. This is how you attract attention to your writing. The abstract should contain the essence of the report.
  • Another important part in a message is the introduction. Most reports start with an introduction section. After title/abstract introduction and conclusions are the two mainly read parts of a report.
