Write a letter to the General Manager , Central Railway , claiming compensation for goods damaged in transit .

 Respected Sir ,

The furniture which was despatched to me from Mumbai by passengers train ( R.R. No. 1234 dated  5 th September , 2003 ) arrived here in a damaged condition . The legs of two chairs are broken . The looking – glass of the dressing table has two cracks . I have brought this to the notice of the Station Master .

Since the goods were booked at the risk of the railway , I am entitled to compensation . I estimate the damage at Rs.2000/- . I request that my claim be passed and Rs. 2000/- remitted to me as early as possible .

                                                                                                                                                                  Yours truly ,
