A loan agreement needs to be registered between a private limited company (borrower) and one of its shareholders (lender). Both the borrower and lender want to keep the original agreement since they want something which is legally enforceable through court.
What should be done? Can a notarized copy be enforced in the court? I think the lender normally keeps the original, whereas the borrower gets a copy. What could be done so both the parties have a legally enforceable document (valid in court)?

Even in the original agreement itself you should mention like original is with lender and the attested is with the borrower like that, then it can valid in court, if the borrower produced attested in court

can't we execute the agreement in duplicate with a mention in the body of the agreement that the agreement has been executed in duplicate and a copy is retained by both the parties? - (inviting comments from experts regarding the same..)
