What is a Tender Advertisement?
A tender in a newspaper is mainly meant to seek or sell services, contracts or goods. Government organisations as well as private companies get tender notices published in newspapers for the above purposes.
Tender Notice in Newspaper Format
Here, we have provided the format used to write tender business advertisements to give you an idea about how these are written.
To start with, mention the name of the organisation or the authority publishing the tender advertisement on the right-hand side corner. This will give a clear idea about who is making the announcement.
The title here will be NOTICE. Write a notice in all caps and bold it to draw attention. This should come immediately after the organisation’s name.
It is time now to mention the date on which the notice is being issued. This helps record clearly when the notice was published. The information comes in handy for both readers and the organisation.
The notice heading needs to be written after the date. You must choose a heading which is relevant and interesting. It should capture the attention of your target readers and prompt them to go through the notice.
In the body of the notice, you must include the details related to the information you want to share. The what, when, where, who and whom must all be included in the notice. You must take care that the information mentioned is correct and concise. The facts stated should be cross-checked to ensure accuracy of the information.
The name of the person who has written the notice should come at the end. As a proof of validity, the person’s signature must also be there on the notice.
While this is the standard format for tender ads in newspapers, it is suggested to go through the instructions and format shared by Times of India or the specific newspaper you aim to get your tender published in, to avoid rejection or any kind of hassle later.

What is a Public Notice Ad?
A public notice ad is a way to inform the public about any recent developmental changes pertaining to any policies or rules and regulations. Important legal information or clarification is also given by way of a public notice.
Public Notice Ad Format
Writing a public notice is simpler when compared to drafting a newspaper tender notice. Its format is quite simple, and the message is usually short and to the point. Here is the standard public notice ad format:
The date on which the notice is being published should come on the left-hand side corner.
Just below the date, write the title which is PUBLIC NOTICE. Public Notice should be written in all caps and must be in bold.
Make the announcement by providing all the necessary information to send out the message loud and clear. While your public notice should contain the essential details, it must be kept short and crisp. You may mention the information in a few points to make it more readable.
The name of the person announcing the notice should come after the body of the text.
Designation and Organisation
Mention the designation of the writer as well as the name of the organisation.
The name of the place where the organisation/authority is making the announcement must follow and mark the end of the notice.
