Should you have any questions or concerns with this letter, please contact me at 011-785-8745-9874.
Thank you for your assistance.
You don't have to number your items as I have done. I like numbers in this instance because if I do speak with him later, I can say, I am still missing information on items: 4, and 7. If you have a long list of items, it is nice to simply provide the numbers rather than having to describe each item over the phone again while the person writes it down.
Also, the numbered items should be indented. Because of the way this web page works, I can't indent it. But you should.
Does this meet your needs?

Thank you very much
The degree of formality needed very much depends on the country you live in.
Indian English is much, much more formal than any other kind of English I know about.
