Company resolution letter serves as an evidence of the proceedings of meetings and according to section 118(8) of the Companies Act, 2013,

A company resolution letter need not be stamped or notarized.

All that is required to prove a company resolution letter is that

a) it should be on company letter head

b) Signed by Directors of the company and

c) Company seal affixed on the resolution.

Hope this information is useful.

This is my response to you:

1. Yes it can be used a valid and a very important documentary evidence;

2. As long as there is no dispute with regard to the letter, then the court will consider the evidentiary value in any dispute;

3. Make sure nobody else has access to it, otherwise the other side could prepare a counter for the same.
