      As per sec 12(3)(a) of the COA,2013,
      –Every Company shall, paint or affix its name , and address of the registered office and keep the same , on the outside of evry office or the place where business is carried on .further the name diplayed must be legible(clear & visible) preferably in English or in local language.

      so, it may be implied that photograph from outside the registered office must display the name board & its address, even though it was not expressed directly in the rules.

      Thanks for your feedback
