It's important to acknowledge the intention to accept an employee's resignation and to follow up with a formal response. This sample letter can be used as input for your formal letter. The format is intuitive and already has content that states your acceptance, shows compassion, provides some ideas on how to protect the company. Make sure to be mindful of your subject line and to invite the employee after the resignation is announced and to hold an exit interview. By having an exit interview, you can learn more about the way the company has treated the employee and how he or she felt at the end of the relationship. This resignation acceptance letter helps to maintain a positive relationship with your old employee by leaving with a strong and positive final impression, while also paving the way for him or her.
It's always good to keep in touch with your former employees, and if possible to host events now and then for alumni.

The Board of Directors shall on receipt of such notice take note of the same and the company shall intimate the Registrar of Companies in such manner, within such time and in such form as may be prescribed.
