CHSE Odisha 11th Class English Notice Writing
A notice is a written or printed news, announcement or information. It is usually displayed publicly on a school/college notice-board. A notice can also be given for insertion in a newspaper like an advertisement. But there is one main difference between an advertisement and a notice. An advertisement is chiefly commercial (or matrimonial) in nature; but a notice is a general piece of information for a particular group. A notice should be in complete sentences or even in the form of a short paragraph, whereas an advertisement can be in the form of merely catching phrase and slogans.
