Notice (Basic)



Include the details of the issuing authority

A notice is a small piece of writing, which is widely used by individuals or organizations to make announcements, issue public instructions, to extend invitations, etc. It is important to mention the details of the issuing authority of the notice as the target audience should be able to identify and approach the person who has issued the notice in case of any doubts or uncertainties.
Eg. Principal (Ms. Veronica Fernandes) wants to invite the parents of the students at her school for the annual day event through a notice. The notice will have her name followed by her designation as the issuing authority. If the issuing authority is not a person, then we should mention the name of the organization issuing the notice.
