That is basically OK, Abhi. Here are some adjustments:

Dear Mr [Surname],

I would like to apply for 5 days' leave. My father has recently become quite ill, and I need to return home and take care of some family business. I request you to kindly approve a leave of absence from ----- to ----.

Thank you very much for considering my request.

Sincerely yours,

On plain paper do I need to put title like this and put subject or something else to make little more elaborate.I m also putting my employee number at the end of an application below A.

Plain paper is fine; a letter needs no title. Yes, give your employee number under your name, and if it is a large organization, your job title and department.
