  1. Whether the said notice is equally applicable under the new Companies Act? Any changes in the same if required to be send under the new Companies Act?

    1. Thanks for your query. Under the Companies Act 2013, the notice has to be under Section 271 (2) (a) I believe. I think its the same 21 days time period to repay the debt from the date of receiving notice. Let me know if something has come to your notice that may have slipped my mind.

  2. WE HAVE A DECREE AGAINST A PRIVATE LILMITED COMPANY AND WANT TO GIVE NOTICE UNDER SECTION 434 OF COMPANIES ACT 1956 AND NEW COMPANIES ACT 271. PLEASE ADVANCE THE DRAFT OF NOTICE. SINCE SECTION 271 OF NEW ACT IS NOT NOTIFIED WE HAVE NOT GIVE NOTICE UNDER OLD ACT
