LESSON 15 P1 --- Form Filling


Dear Students: This site is developed for your help and guidance. We will appreciate your comments & feed back. Soon we will add other subjects to this site. Thanks

15FILLING IN THE FORMS

A form is a kind of question paper asking information or facts for specific purpose. For example Post Office has made a Money Order form to enable a person to send his money to his relatives. Telegram form is used to convey an urgent message or news. Students fill the Admission Forms to get themselves admitted to an institution. Similarly there are forms for getting a passport, a visa, a connection of electricity, telephone and gas. What is important is the supply of correct information to facilitate the department to process the case easily. Short cut questions are asked in these forms about the applicant. For example 'Name' means 'what is your name?' 'Address' means 'what is your place of residence?' and so on.


Two kinds of forms are given here to show you how to fill them out:
i) Money Order

ii) Tlegram

1. MONEY ORDER

One uses this form to send money to a person in another town, city or village. The person who sends money through money order is the sender. The person who receives the money is the receiver of the money sent by the sender. The receiver is also mentioned as addressee on the form.


Following particulars are to be filled out correctly by the sender.

1. Correct name and address of the person to whom the money is sent.

2. Amount to be written in words and figures.

3. Name and address of the person who is sending the money.

4. Date when the Money Order has been filled out by the sender.


Reproduced below is a Money Order Form duly filled out as an example to follow. Only the requisite portion is reproduced here.

Suppose Abu Bakar living in Lahore wants to send Rs.450/- to his son Ahmed in Rawalpindi. Each of the item should be carefully filled out.'

Carefully study how the form has been filled out by Abu Bakar, the father of Ahmed.


Note: The teacher will help to fill in the information necessary for the sender only.

This is a student – teacher activity.

II. Telegram

In the modern age means of communication have improved and become quick and easy. Telephone, internet and other types of information technology e.g. E-mail has eliminated/finished the distance. People sitting across the seas and oceans of the world can send messages to one another in seconds.


But these facilities are available in big cities only. People in villages and towns still use the old means of conveying urgent messages. One of the most common and quick means of conveying important messages is by way of telegram. Telegrams can now be booked on phone as well.



Booking of Telegrams

Telegrams (inland/foreign) can be booked at the public counters of PTCL Telegraph Offices or at authorized Post Office Branches.



Phonograms

Telegrams on telephone can be booked by dialing "116" (24 hours service) except press telegrams. This facility is available in all major cities. Although every care is taken yet PTCL accepts no responsibility for any mutilation or mistakes in transmission of messages through this service.
