Being a government employee can make you feel very proud since it could happen that you have spent most of your working life at it (retirement resignation) or you have started and you need to submit a formal resignation due to a new job opportunity, etc.

Whatever the reason is, if you want to quit and maintain a professional and good relationship then, it is important to write a good resignation letter that reflects this.

Moreover, consider you may have to submit your letter according to the notice period stipulated in your contract or it could be the standard 2 weeks’ notice.

Example from naukri.com:

Sub: Resignation

Dear Mr./Mrs. {Recipient’s Name},

I regret to inform you that I will no longer be working as a {Your Position} at {Your Company}. I have got an acceptance from the College of Engineering, Pune for Bachelor of Engineering in Information Technology.

You know I have been trying to pursue engineering, especially in the IT branch. My father always wanted me to become an engineer. After my father’s death, it was you and your company that supported me. I thank Mr. Pratap Aiyaar for hiring me after my 12th. My job here has supported my mother and me both financially and emotionally. I have saved enough money for my engineering fees as well as to fund my living expenses. Also, the Government of India Scholarship will help me manage most part of the tuition fees.

Nick Corcodilos says that a degree is not necessary to have a successful career, but not having one means foregoing certain jobs. Becoming an engineer will open up new avenues in a job for me. I will be able to comfortably manage my home and my commitments thoroughly. My mother is overjoyed with the acceptance, her happiness knows no bounds. I will always be grateful to {Your Company} for all the help I have received. My work here as a call center representative will be useful for my future aspirations. My communication skill has become stronger. I thank my team manager, Mr. Shetty, for accommodating my few errors in the beginning. He was very flexible with my shifts. I will also miss my colleagues. Their companionship has made my tenure pleasant.

Thank you once again for all the help. I will always be indebted to you. I hope to maintain a future relationship with you and {Your Company}. I wish everyone the best.

Sincerely,

{Your Name}

Sub: Resignation

Dear Mr./Mrs. {Recipient’s Name},

I am writing to inform you that I am resigning from my position as a {Your Position} at {Your Company}.

Recently, I received a new job offer as a {New Position} at {Company Name}. After careful consideration, I have decided to accept this new job opportunity and will be commencing work with them soon. As you know, change is vital for progress, I believe that this new job will help me achieve my future goals in graphic designing. Whatever I have learned in {Your Company} will enormously help me in the future. I started as a fresher here and in {total years served}, I progressed to become a Design Analyst.

Working for {Your Company}, for the past {years} has been a wonderful experience. I have learned a lot from the opportunities provided to me here and have seen myself grow personally as well as professionally during my tenure. Besides, the Art Director Mr. {Name of the person} helped me hone my artistic abilities and creativity. I appreciate the help and support I have received from all my colleagues and co-workers. I will miss them immensely. Henry Ford has said, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success”. I believe it is because of my co-workers and the unity among us that I have been able to achieve this much.

I truly hope that my resignation does not cause you any sort of inconvenience. Please let me know what I can do to make this a smooth transition for the entire department. I will be completing my ongoing project of designing the logo for XYZ Company before my departure. Also, I am willing to help with the training of my replacement before I leave. Thank you for your support and understanding in this matter. I wish you all well and best in future endeavors.

Sincerely,

  1. Sample resignation letter government employee (retirement  letter format)

Example from naukri.com:

Sub: Resignation

Dear Mr./Mrs. {Recipient’s Name},

I would like to take voluntary retirement from the position of {Your Position} at {Your Company}. I have spent almost 15 years here and I have enjoyed every minute spent here. You may wonder why I am taking retirement when I still have 6 years of service still remaining. The reason is that my son has now become a permanent resident of the United Kingdom and he feels that it is better if I shift there and stay with him.

After my open-heart surgery, it has become a bit difficult for me to manage things alone. While I appreciate all the help I have received from this Company after my surgery, I feel it will be best for me to shift to the UK. I will also be able to spend more time with my granddaughter.

It has been an honor to have served this Company for so many years. I will miss everything about this place; the first few years will be very difficult for me to adjust. I would love to thank each and every member who has been a part of my life during my tenure here. I miss Avinash Sir who has now retired and Pradnya Wanjale my present head. She is really very talented. I thank my colleagues and staff. I have made many friends here and hope to maintain relations even after leaving India.

I hope you understand my reason and will grant me the voluntary retirement which should be effective from the end of this month. Thank you for your attention to this matter. I feel really lucky to have been part of such a great Company. I am sure this Company will reach new heights. I wish everyone success and prosperity for the future.
