    Hon’ble Sir,
    With due respect I hereby request you to be kind enough to consider my prayer.
    That sir, I am a Disable person (Divyangjan). Still I have completed my graduation degree and started a DTP center at home. With my best effort I developed the centre and took a financial Loan from Gramin Vikash Bank, Morigaon Branch and bought a Printing Machine. Four employee helped me in my press. With Disability I was successfully run the business.
    But Sir, afterwards there grows many offset Press competitively. As I am a disable person I cannot run on competition. As a result my business goes down day by day.
    At present I am trying my best to develop my press, but due to lack of financial support I am frustrated.
    Therefore after getting the advertizement of your National Award for Empowerment of person with disability 2017, I with great hope request you by this application. I hope sir, please bless me by empowering through your authority.
    Yours faithfully
