    Section 12(3)(c ) of the Companies Act, 2013
    which comes into effect from 1st April, 2014
    provides that
    (3) Every company shall—
    (c) get its name, address of its registered office
    and the Corporate Identity Number along with
    telephone number, fax number, if any, e-mail
    and website addresses, if any, printed in all its
    business letters, billheads, letter papers and in
    all its notices and other official publications;
    and (d) have its name printed on hundies,
    promissory notes, bills of exchange and such
    other documents as may be prescribed:
    Provided that where a company has changed its
    name or names during the last two years, it shall
    paint or affix or print, as the case may be, along
    with its name, the former name or names so
    changed during the last two years as required
    under clauses (a) and (c):
    Important Changes
    The Corporate Identity Number which is a 21
    digit number allotted by the Ministry of Corporate
    Affairs – this needs to be now printed in the
    company letter heads/ invoices and any other
    official documents of the company.
    Where there is a change in the name of the
    company during the last two years then the
    former name shall also be mentioned along with
    the current name. It can be mentioned as
    “erstwhile XYZ Private Limited” in brackets under
    the new name. The period for which the old
