The names of all the witnesses who were examined shall be endorsed on the indictment. The names of all persons upon whose statements the information is based shall be endorsed thereon.

SUPREME COURT COMMENTARY
1962:
The requirement as to witnesses' names on the information is new but provides a parallel to similar requirements for indictments in Cr C 120. The provisions as to effect of omission of such names is, of course, new also. It is taken from Uniform Code Rule 21.
