Certificate Authentication from HRD/GAD
All documents should be first authenticated by the designated agencies/department in the State from where the document/certificate has been issued.
In case of personal certificate/documents, Home Department/GAD the designated authorities. In case of educational documents, State Governments have now opened Regional Authentication Centers (RAC) at various States from where the document should first be attested. Documents attested by these authorities then need to be presented to Ministry of External Affairs for attestation prior to Embassy Authentication.
