In July I received a offer letter via official mail from my new employer signed by CEO.
On the basis of that offer letter I joined my job . A month later in august I received a offer cum appointment letter with many clause but the same was issued by Director ..
As my employer firm is a partnership firm so how he can issue the letter as director?
Kindly let me know my new offer letter is valid or my old offer letter legally valid.
Kindly reply

You have mentioned that you have received an offer letter, first and then an appointment letter, so why do tab that as two offer letters? A Director in a partnership firm is legally entitled to issue an offer letter or an appointment letter. While asking such questions, please be clear in what type of organization you work for, is there an HR department, etc.
Please check the title of the company on your letter head wherein you have received the appointment letter, it will clear you doubt. Similarly check whether your company has some planning for expansion/converting the firm into Pvt./Public Limited company, whether they have applied for in ROC.
You joined the company on the basis of the offer letter signed by the CEO of a partnership firm (still an employee)
Then you were given an appointment letter, signed by a director. I assume the director is actually a partner.
There are some clauses in the appointment letter, as is always there, and mostly these clauses are not given in the offer letter.
But what exactly is your problem ?
Is it that the appointment letter is signed by one of the owners (his designation makes hardly a difference as long as he is a partner or is authorised to issue the letter)
or is the problem that there are clauses in it ?
or is it that you have a problem with him using a particular designation other than partner
