Written communication fits in all kind of organizational communication process. which consist of all the communication of its employees whenever they get together. It also involves longer number of cycle. deposit or withdrawn of money. Then let’s find out what is the case for written and oral communication.

Fax and Xerox machine have there own role to play in an organization and they are really needed in these days. 7.6) The ways of communication. For sending e-mail they use internet and personal computer. With all these they enjoy the services of national mail service. When a job and order is ordered by the senior officer and is done and distributed in junior officer then the communication goes downward and when a group of junior officers ask there immediate boss for something then that is a upward direction communication.
