Unit 14. Business  Enquiry & Reply


When buyer wants to know on what price and on which terms & conditions a seller sells the goods, he usually sends an inquiry letter to the seller; and asks the seller to provide catalogue, price list and even samples of goods.

Jab koi grahak (kharidar) yeh janana chahata hai ki vikreta (bechane wala) apna maal kis keemat aur kin sharto par dega, tab aam taur par woh vikreta ko ek janch patra bhejata hai tatha us-se keemat soochi, samaan soochi aur samaan ke namoone ki maang karata hai.
