Dear all,

At our office we had to send a communication to District Medical Officers of 6 districts of our state. The clerk concerned wrote the address as given below. I think that the symbol "/" should be replaced with "commas" since as per my understanding the symbol "/" means 'either this or that'. But here the communication. should be send to the District Medical Officers of six districts. So the symbol "/" should be replaced with "commas" as "Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Idukki, Alappuzha, Ernakulam, Palakkad. I'd like to get your opinion on this.
