Attestation of documents
The High Commission only attests ORIGINAL documents after they would have first been authenticated/attested by the designated authorities from the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, Chambers of Commerce and Industry/Food and Drug Administration/Notary Public.
The procedure is as follows:
- Educational Certificates – These must first be attested by the relevant State Education Department, Notary Public, Sub Divisional Magistrate and the Ministry of External Affairs. The authentication must be clearly signed, stamped/sealed.
- Commercial Documents – These must first be authenticated by the relevant district Chamber of Commerce and Food and Drug Administration, where the business has been registered; Notary from the Government of India and the Ministry of External Affairs. These documents should be stamped/sealed and signed accordingly before the High Commission could process.
NB: Documents for pharmaceutical products must include the manufacturing and expiration dates. Products with less than a year shelf life will not be attested.
FEE: – Rupees 1000 per original page.
- This High Commission attests documents/certificates on the basis that the relevant authorities have authenticated, and that the details provided, especially the expiration dates, are valid; hence the Mission does not take responsibility for the content of the documents.
- All submission should be accompanied by photocopies. However, these will not be attested by the High Commission.
- Fraudulent documents/signatures will be handed over to the police authority for necessary action.
