Dear Friends,
If I don\'t know any Gazetted Officer personally and if I approach one for getting my Photo ID certified, for getting a PAN card,is he duty bound to certify them or he has no such duty towards the people who approach him for certification

Ask anyone through your friends, attestation only means that you have seen the original and copy and verify that copy is indeed a true copy of original, go to any doctor and give him rs.50/- he will attest your photograph or ask your PAN card agent to do the same in india with money you can even buy taj mahal, want to buy?

Hi, CASrinyvas,
Yes you can get certified your Documents by Gazetted Officer by visiting personally along with your Original Address proof and other documents such as Voter ID Card, Rashan Card, Electricity Bill, Passport Copy, Driving License.
Well, could you please share what Photo ID you need to be certified and the purpose of it.

Not a problem at all. Go to Your principal.s office and explain the situation. He will certify it.
or go to any Recognised school and show your SSC /Degree certificate or Driving licence. It's not a life and death question. The requirement is to ensure that you are not a ficttitious person and known to be eisting in in India in reality. The stipulations are only to ensure that certain things are not misused. We are reading in News Papers and watching on TV that The important / celebrities /rich people are issued White ration cards meant for Below Povert Line Families. And also Arrest warrans are issued in remote places against people who rarely move out of Delhi/ State Capitals on fictitious complaints.
In Andhra Pradesh Ration Card was issued by showing a member of Ex Pm of India as resident in a remote place and the address is a Thatched Hut.
So don't worry! comply with rule and get benefits.

In Andhra Pradesh a Ration Card was issued by showing a member of Ex PM's family as resident in a remote place and the address given is a Hut.NOt only that Marriage certificates are also issued like tha by naming celebrities as wife and/or husband of some mischievous people. This is because some Gazetted Officers sign whatever papers that are put before them without any thought. Some of them are 500% careful and don't sign on such papers even if persuaded to any extent.

So don't worry! comply with rule and get benefits.

Hi Srinyvas,
Certifying/Attesting the documents for the public/citizen is one of the responsibility of a Gazetted officer. But it depends on their work priority. You need not pay anything to get an attestation.
My simple experience is, I took the original and it\'s xerox copies to the nearest post office and requested for attestation with the post master. He just asked for the original documents, verified that with the xerox copies and attested immediately.

Hi Srinyvas,

No one is duty bond to attest your certificate, usually people don't want to fall in trouble so they avoid attesting unknown person's certificate, because if the certificate is false and if the person attests it then he may lose the job and even sent to jail. As already told by other's, the best thing to do is approach your college principal. Please note below the following people who can attest your certificate.

Attestation of copies of original documents for academic or Migration can be done by Class I and Class II, public servants/officers and bank managers of a Nationalised bank as well.

For Example : Associate Professors/Principal of Government Degree Colleges, Patent Examiner (Official Designation- Examiner of Patents and Designs) Additional District Civil surgeons, Assistant Executive Engineers(Selected through UPSC) Executive Engineers and above, District Medical Officer and above, , Geologists of Geological Survey of India etc are Gazetted officers and have the authority to verify and attest documents.

Character certificate can be attested only by: Police records verification and Class I gazetted officers

Where as Citizenship certification is limited to very few officials e.g., Sub-Divisional Magistrate

Dear Friend,
There are n number of authorities of central, state, local self governments, school/colleges, magistrates, etc that if approached with proper documentation, there is no need to pay any money for attestation. However, knowing somebody fasterns such works.

Dear All,

As many said, G.Os are not liable to do attestation of Photo ID. It's all depend on their convenience, no one can compel them. There is no law compelling them to do this. Generally attestation is insisted to verify and accept the copies are geniune as the GOs are supposed to be a responsible officers authorised by state and central govt. by enlisting them on the Gazette Notifications of respective govts. Normally GOs don't refuse to attest provided they are free to do. Most HMs & Lecturers, Asst.Prof., Profs/Principals of govt. schools and colleges are GOs. But not in the case of Post Masters it is not so, because not all Sub Post Masters and Post Masters are GOs. Only a few PMs are GOs. But the PMs normally don't refuse to attest. Similarly govt. doctors generally they are not free all the time but cannot rule out something in return if they attest. Best approach could be catch hold of peons and ward boys they'll get it done, no matter they know you or not.

As rightly mentioned by so many members in India such things have really become farcical ! One example when we get an affidavit from the Notary.Leave alone the notary knowing you personally even he does not see you in person but signs the affidavit!
