Manas Sethia

Orchid Pvt. Ltd.

HR Manager,

Sub: Application for Leave

Respected Sir/Madam (whichever is applicable)

I would like to apply for 10-days leave as I have to visit my parents in my hometown. My father is sick and has been hospitalized recently. I need to go there to look after him and be there with my family. So I would request you to grant me leave starting from 17th September, 2012 and ending on 26th September, 2012.

I would be highly obliged if my leave request is granted.

Yours faithfully

R. Ramakrishna

Sales Executive
