Any action taken by an enterprise must be carried out by a person authorized to make decisions on behalf of the company. This could be a member of the board of directors, the owner of the corporation, or another person with authority, such as a CEO or president. When a person approves or confirms the company`s actions, it is legally referred to as «ratification.» Ratification can take place in a number of situations, but its legality is determined by the circumstances and facts surrounding the event or action taken. Not all constitutional amendments in India require state ratification. Only constitutional amendments to amend any of the provisions referred to in Article 368 of the Constitution of India need to be ratified by the legislators of at least half of the states. These provisions concern certain matters relating to the federal structure or of common interest to both the Union and the States, namely the election of the President (Articles 54 and 55); the extent of the executive power of the Union and the States (Articles 73 and 162); the superior courts of the territories of the Union (Article 241); the judiciary of the Union and the High Courts of the States (Chapter IV of Part V and Chapter V of Part VI); the division of legislative competences between the Union and the Member States (Chapter I of Part XI and Seventh Schedule); state representation in Parliament; and the amendment of the Constitution provided for in article 368. Ratification is effected by a decision of the state legislature. There is no specific deadline for state legislators to ratify amending legislation. However, decisions ratifying the proposed amendment must be adopted before the draft amendment is submitted to the President for approval.  A ratification agreement must indicate that each party wishes to ratify the treaty. A copy of the contract must be attached. It must contain the date of ratification and all the necessary clauses. This includes how notice is provided in the agreement.
The agreement must be signed by all parties. Ratification of the treaty was a royal prerogative exercised by the monarch on the advice of the government. Under a convention called the Ponsonby Rule, treaties were usually submitted to Parliament for 21 days before being ratified.  It was put on a legal basis by the 2010 Law on Constitutional Reform and Governance. In contract law, the need for ratification may arise in two ways: when the trustee tries to bind the contracting authority when he is not authorized; and if the principal authorizes the agent to enter into an agreement, but reserves the right to approve it. An example of the first case is an employee who is not normally responsible for the procurement of supplies contracted on behalf of the employer. Upon discovery of the contract, the employer has the choice to ratify or refuse it. Article VII of the United States Constitution outlines the process by which the entire document should come into effect.
The conventions of nine of the thirteen original States had to ratify the constitution. If fewer than thirteen States ratified the document, it would take effect only between ratifying States.  New Hampshire was the ninth state to ratify this on June 21, 1788, but for practical reasons it was decided to postpone implementation of the new government until New York and Virginia could be persuaded to ratify. Congress wanted New York to be the first capital and George Washington of Mount Vernon, Virginia, to be the first president, and both things would have been a little uncomfortable if New York or Virginia had not been part of the new administration. Ratification by these states was assured — Virginia on June 25 and New York on July 26 — and constitutional government began on March 4, 1789. If an employee signs a contract for your company, the other party may want you to ratify it by showing that you agree to the terms. If you have reasons to declare the treaty invalid, ratification shows that you want it to continue as it is. You have the option to refuse ratification.
Ratification of international treaties is always carried out through the submission of instruments of ratification, as provided for in the treaty.  In most democracies, the legislature empowers the government to ratify treaties through standard legislative procedures by passing legislation. Treaty power is a coordinated effort between the executive branch and the Senate. The president can form and negotiate, but the treaty must be debated and approved by a two-thirds majority in the Senate. Only after the treaty has been approved by the Senate can the President ratify it. Once ratified, it will become binding on all States under the supremacy clause. Although the House of Representatives does not vote on this at all, the requirement for Senate deliberation and approval for ratification makes it much more difficult to gain sufficient political support for international treaties. If the implementation of the treaty requires the use of funds, the House of Representatives can block or at least impede that implementation by refusing to vote to allocate the necessary funds. The president usually submits a treaty to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (SFRC) along with a decision on ratification or accession. If the treaty and resolution are considered positively by the committee (a vote of the committee for ratification or accession), the treaty is forwarded to the full Senate for a vote. The treaty or legal provisions apply only after ratification. A multilateral agreement may provide that it will take effect upon ratification by fewer than all signatories.
 Even if such a treaty enters into force, it does not apply to signatories who have not ratified it. Accession has the same legal effect as ratification of treaties already negotiated and signed by other States.  An example of a treaty that the Senate did not advise and ratify is the Treaty of Versailles, which was not supported because of the League of Nations Covenant. The essential elements of a contract include an offer, acceptance, consideration, and a «leaders` meeting,» meaning that the parties have understood and agreed on the basic terms of the contract.
