    Date or Dated

    In our official communication, on the top left corner, we write File No., and on top right corner, we write date. Please clarify whether one should write 'date' or 'dated' at the top left corner.

    Re: Date or Dated

    "Date" seems the most natural and common to me.

    At the bottom of official documents, there are sometimes two lines, one for a signature and one marked "Signature dated" where you have to fill in the date you signed the form, but that doesn't seem appropriate in the document you have described.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Welcome to the forum, sanjeedv.

    We'd normally say 'in the ... corner'.
