My father has got a message that he had received 50000rs.

Is this sentence meaningful or not?? Can I use "he had received 50,000rs" after "that"? If not, please send me the correct alternative sentence.

  • My father received a message informing him of receipt of 50000rs. The problem with your construction (as I see it) is the odyssey it takes us on in tense and verb. What did your father receive? Both a message (and a sum of money)... when did the two events occur? What is it you intend to convey? Also, your title is terrible. – Elliott Frisch Dec 27 '18 at 4:15
  • @ElliottFrisch thanks for your answer. I am sorry about the given title. I am literally new to the stack overflow and also this is my first question. when I was asked to give a title, I am not sure of it. So I had given something else. Sorry about it. Hereafter I do give a title which is apt for the question. – user8683499 Dec 27 '18 at 4:37
  • If you say 'has got a message' you need to say 'has received' (or 'had got a message that he had received'). – Kate Bunting Dec 27 '18 at 10:03

Your father received a message informing him that he had received 50000rs.

Your father received a message: he had received 50000rs.

I think the duplication of the word received is the potential problem. Is there another word that will work? Received a message is pretty basic usage. How about something different on the other side?

Your father received a message that 50000rs had been deposited in his account. (?)

Your father received a message that 50000rs had arrived. (?)
