Contracts & Scm
One more thing i want to share here about this Shiksha Sadan. Actually there are 2 Shiksha Sadan offices in same area. One is in Sector-2 and other the real one is in Sector-5 next to CBSE office. Sector-2 office full name is "takniki shiksha sadan". This "takniki shiksha sadan" is not the real one from where you have to get your certificates attested. I by mistake went there and people over there done complete process and get my certificate attested by Mr. K.P. Singh(Deputy director- Technical). They took all my educational certificates attested photocopies along with job offer letter and put their attestation stamp on back of my B.E. certificate .
They all are bunch of lousy government officials. They know nothing. When i went back for ministry of external affairs(MEA) attestation in Delhi they said this attestation from K.P. Singh is not valid (some Mr. Kalia is authorized person for this) and they don't have his signature verification with them. I got completed blank. After around one day search on Google and making around 100 calls to different phone numbers(non of them working) one person picked up the phone and that too the real person(Mr. Kalia). He told me everything about the process and that too in very polite manner.
Next day i went there and done all these formalities:
A) Application Form and Affidavit
B) Passport Size Photo
C) Rs 50 Postal order for each Certificate/degree
D) Attested Copy of Passport
E) 2 Attested Copies of each of Certificate/degree to be authenticated
F) 1 Attested Copy of Final Year Marksheet
G) Copy of Job Offer letter (if any)
Now i have still not visited my university(MDU) because of some on-going employees strike over there. Still to go and lets see what will happen as i have already wasted my one important month.
Also please be aware of Touts who will follow you the moment you enter in MEA department in Delhi. If you don't have any idea of all this then i would suggest you to give this responsibility to some genuine agency but i would suggest you to do this HRD attestation from Panchkula your-self as its a very lengthy process and if you put everything on government official then it will take may be more then one month.
Will tell you more once i complete all formalities.

After taking this letter from MDU reach the PAnchukla office in the morning itself so that all formalities can be completed within day itself. They may tell you to come tommorow but if you request them and tell them that you are coming far way then they might give the certificate same day. If everything goes fine then you need to rush the MEA department in DELHI - PATALIA HOUSE near India Gate. Reach there in the morning exactly at 9 am. Timings are 9 to 12 and then in evening 4-6pm. There is long line even if you reach early in the morning and evening. So plan accordingly. Take 2 photocopy of the attested certificate along with you.
Once MEA certification done then comes your respective Culture attestation as they from countries embassies.
Saudi Embassy office is in Vasant Kunj, just check on Google the exact address becauee i don't remeber it now. Here also you will face same problem, nobody will talk to you in polite manner. They have internal corruption where they have assigned different touts to work for your Culture attestation. You cannot do it yourself. I tried a lot but all in vane. So fianlly i have to hire one tout for my Embassy attestation. Before you hire just check the rate by calling all the authorised touts. There are some who are really genuinen. My embassy attestion cost to me only Rs.900. Some were asknig as high as Rs.2000. So just check. All these touts have there Embassy certified Identification cards thats why embassy people allow only these guys to enter their premises. Remeber to give your certificates to them on monday of Tuesday because embassy accept these certificates only on these days and return back only on Fridays. So keep in Mind.
If you are lucky then you will get your country attestation after one week otherwise max. 2-3 weeks. If this is done then all work from your side is OVER. Now comes the turn of your placement consultant to get your Passport VISA. Inform them about it. I get my visa after one Month from some Mumbai company.
Once you get your VISA in your hand then start packing your BAGS. :)
Ufff ek job ke liye itna Maarmaari.. But this is only one time activity guys so chilll.

But there say no , and I return to home without sealed this envelope. And on next working day I have to go Chandigarh but cannot say wether they accept my letter or not because it is sealed.
But the main thing about MDU. I think they don't have any problem in completing my work if I offerd "BRIBE" , or under table money . Because I didn't gave any money to these dogs only thats why they didn't complete my work.
So I request to all of you that please don't give them any BRIBE.
and if they were asking for it make a video any then circulate on net.

Than they ask me to wAIT outside till 3.30 As they have lunch from 1.30 To 2.30 So i came out and had tea and lunch brot from home, note: there is no food court nearby so manage ur own bt u can get juice tea outside.
I again reach at1st floor and wait till 2.45pm than ask for status the people there are supportive and did not ask for any money which was sign of Acche Din relieved!
And the superintendent signed and give me letter at 3.30 And i came home with smile.

Subject HRD Attestation of Degree from Sector 5, Panchkula, Haryana
I sought HRD attestation of B.Ed. Degree passed out from Al Falah University, Faridabad, Haryana.
* Office Timing is 9 am to 5 pm
* It is a 4-hour car drive from Delhi.
* After reaching Panchkula, first of
all, get a Rs 50 Indian Postal Order
from Post office located at Sector
* Next go to Siksha Sadan, UNP
Dept which is located at Sector 5,
Panchkula. Fill up the form and attach documents and submit to the official. I found him cooperative. A letter will be issued addressed to the addressee from where u passed ur degree. Get it verified by the registrar of the university concerned. Again go to panchkula for attestation of degree with the sealed envelope u got from the university concerned.
Note: All documents will be self attested.

This is the latest answer and accurate information for HRD Attestion in Haryana.
If you have done B.tech from MDU Rohtak university means your degree is issued from here.
For countries like UAE , KUWAIT , and other Gulf and european countries needs embassy attestation.
it is a 3 step process :-
1. HRD attestation
2. MEA Ministry of External affairs
For HRD in Haryana I went to Chandigarh Sector 5 Punchkula Siksha Sadan.
From faridabad I got the direct bus to the stop of Punchkula. Else you need to take bus for Zikarpur.
There are two Siksha Sadan You need to go to Sec 5 for B.tech.
Ask form Gaurd For UMP department in first floor although every thing is clearly written they are very nice people and will do your work easily. Mr. Mukesh is there peon he can guide you and do the work easily.
Dont give brabery to any one. However no body will ask.
Documents required in 2017 when I did the same it was :
Form provided by department.
1 Degree photostat
2 Passport photostat
1 Photograph Passport Size
8 Semester Marksheet
Job Offer Letter
They will provide you letter for university verification. Take that letter and reach MDU Rohtak university.
Surely you will need 3 days time to get HRD done so plan accordingly.
In university (MDU) see the real government officers, you need to go to R3 first floor for B.tech degree verification. Thanks for my father he was with me thats why it happened by 12.00 PM else it they meay take whole day.In university , Mr. Chiku will do this so try to find him out.
Then again go to Punchkula , and give them your letter and Degree they will do the attestation and give it back to you.
Overall, its a 3 day process for MDU Rohtak students. Dont give any money to tauts for this. Mine was asking for 16500 and 45 days for whole process of attestation. I did it in 7 working days whole process by myself.
Now give your documents to VFS Global in Delhi Shivaji bridge metro station. they will chaarge you 3100 as whole and provide your documents within 3 days.
Personal advice, Its 2017 dont believe on these tauts they are seriously making people fool I had completed my whole process in 5000 and 7 days they were asking me 16500 for 3 step and 9000 for last 2 step if I had done 1st step by myself.

I again venture out to MDU for the getting the degree verified.
You need to go to Gate 1 of MDU and ask for Result 3 First floor. Mr Chiku will validate the degree and and get it signed. Make sure they put it in the MDU envelope.
Public dealing is from 10 AM to 12 PM and then 3 PM to 4 PM. Make sure you reached there at 10 Am they will ask you to come around 3 PM to collect the letter. So pls prepare to wait for 3 to 4 hours.

Someone from my family will go there and start the process I have done graduation from Kurukshetra University so if somebody has done attestation from KUK please help me to get this out as soon as possible.
28th February 2018 From Netherlands, Amsterdam
The above documents were quite helpful. It is a One day process, if done smartly. And, I would like to give some tips from my own experience-
# If possible, tell someone else to go on your on behalf and get your documents attested and on the same day, go to your own university.
# Give your University a heads-up a day and inform them about the verification to be done tommorow. Also, drop an official mail for the same to the University.
# If going on someone else behalf, take an Authorization Letter/E-Mail from that person stating that they authorize you to get their documents attested on their behalf.
# They donot charge any additional fee, other than in the form of postal order. 50rs postal order per document. ( 3 50rs Postal Orders in my case costed Rs 115 Only. )
# After submitting the documents on your behalf with the UNP department, the other person will receive the Verification Letter after 15-20 minutes. They can WhatsApp or email you this letter and you can this forward this letter to your registrar via email.
# The roles are reversed here, you have to run after the registerar of your University and stand on his head (not literally!) to get your work done as soon as possible ( although its hardly a 10-20 minutes work) to send the Verification Report to the UNP Department via Email, so the other person can receive the attested documents in hand.
NOTE: Sikha Sadan closes at 5 PM, so you have do all these before that.
In my case, the Staff was very kind, Mr. Sonu(the incharge officer) was quite polite & paitient and waited till 6'0 clock (because my University's Registrar decided that he has to attend an urgent meeting and didn't even have the time just to sign the Verification Report 😕) since I told him my situation ( also, I came from a 7 hours distance).
But maybe he won't be so patient next time or there might be some other officer. So try to get there (Shiksha Sadan) as early as possible, so even if your University takes some more time, you won't have that much problem at the end of the day.
I hope I was able to help.

6th September 2018 From India
After lot of misleading information, meeting lot of tauts and wasted money. I finally landed nowhere.
Finally I decided to travel to Panchkula for my BTECH degree HRD attestation.
This is the only forum I found over internet which is really helpful. Thanks to all folks for sharing their experience here.
I am am travelling to Panchkula tomorrow for my degree Attestation and I just wanted to confirm the latest procedure.
After reading all the posts above I have made following key points. Please let me know if I am missing something:
1. Visit panchkula sector 5 shiksha sadan.
2. Documents required:
- 2 copy of passport
- 2 copy of final year marksheet
- 2 copy of degree
- 1 Postal Stamp of Rs 50 per degree Attestation
- 1 copy of Job Offer Letter
- 2 passport size photograph
3. Bring some envelopes and other stationaris as its hard to get anything in a government office.
4. Deposit all this in shiksha sadan and get the letter in favour of university.
5. Visit MDU and get that confirmation.
6. Visit back shiksha sadan and get HRD stamped.
Place share if there is anything I am missing and anything to keep in mind while initiating process.
I will share details once I visit SS toorrow.
25th September 2018 From India, New Delhi
1. Go to Panchkula Shiksha Sadan, Sector 2 (5 Hours drive from Delhi).
2. On first floor you will find UNP branch. Submit 2 self copy of your degree along with supporting documents and this form(http://highereduhry.com/themes/backe...23-08-2017.pdf)
4. Documents Required:
- Degree 2 copies
- Final year marksheet copy
- Passport copy
- Offer letter
- 1 Passport size photo with white background and your name printed on it.
- 50Rs postal stamp(Better buy it from you local city post office)
Note: Make sure all photocopies are complete and clear.
5. Request them to generate a letter in favour of MDU.
Note: If your college now become autonomous university, you need to get the verification letter from your autonomous university before reaching MDU Rohtak.
6. Go to MDU Rohtak, R3 Branch.
7. Submit your Degree photocopy along with the letter from HRD and ask them to give the letter in favour of HRD. Mr. chiku does this work there. People are arrogant there, so try to avoid ascendant and wait for them to complete this own its own(wait outside of room).
8. Request a MDU envelope from them, put this letter in it and seal that using fevistick.
9. Next, go back to Panchkula Shiksha Sadan, same UNP branch and give the MDU envelope and your original degree. They will stamp it and ask you to get that signed by Mr. Arun Joshi who sits on ground floor next to entrance.
10. Task Accomplished.
Additional Tip: If you are doing all this for UAE visa, do not give your degree to any tout before HRD. Once you are done with HRD better go your self to VFS and give your degree for UAE embassy stamping.
