When an individual is planning to go abroad for study or job purposes, then their Educational Certificate Attestation is required. The Educational Certificate Attestation is a process to proof the authenticity of the Certificate / Document by verifying it under authorized Government authority like Human Resource Department (HRD) or Higher Education Department of India etc.
An Educational Certificate or Document is attained by a person when he/she completes a particular course from school / college or university etc. After successful completion of that, the Educational Certificate Attestation is required for abroad to prove the authenticity of that certificate or document and it increases the value in the destination country.
The Educational Certificate Attestation witnesses a very important part in someone’s career in abroad. Now-a-days every country requires the Attestation and Legalization on educational documents for visa purposes to ensure the reliability of the document. Attestation of Educational Document or Certificate ensures the safety from ‘illegal documentation’ to the destination country. Original document can only undergo the process of Educational Certificate Attestation in India.
The Educational Certificate Attestation in India for study or employment/job/work visa purposes, starts from the Attestation of the Higher Education Department (HED) or Human Resource Department (HRD) of the State where the certificate has issued from. The educational document may be obtained from Government as well as Private institution. But the HED or HRD Govt. of India, only attest or authenticate those Educational Certificate or document which are issued by Government Institutions.
In India, the Human Resource Department (HRD) is the authentication or initial Attestation authority for Education Certificate or documents. Now, the higher Educational Certificate Attestation /Authentication or the first step of Attestation will be done by Higher Education Department (HED) instated by HRD. When the Educational Certificate Attestation will be completed from HRD/HED, then the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Attestation will be done.
After completion of the Attestation from HRD or HED, the Educational Certificate Attestation will be completed from Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Govt. of India. The MEA Attestation can be completed anywhere from New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chandigarh and Guwahati Centre in India. The Educational Certificate Attestation from MEA is a mandatory step when it is processing for abroad.
The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Govt of India completes two types of certification. One is ‘Normal Attestation’ and another one is ‘Apostille Attestation’. When the destination country is a non-Hague Conventional Country, then the Educational Certificate Attestation from MEA will be done. If the destination Country is a Hague Conventional Country, then the Educational Document Apostille from MEA will be done.
When the destination Country is not a member of Hague Conventional (non-HCC) then the Educational Certificate Attestation or Legalization will be done from the Embassy or Consulate of the destination Country present in India. The Embassy Attestation will be completed only after the Attestation from MEA, Govt. of India. Some Country also requires their ‘Cultural Centre Attestation’ on the Educational Certificate prior Embassy Attestation.
The process of Educational Certificate Attestation or Authentication from the State Level Human Resource Department (HRD) or Higher Education Department (HED) is very much time consuming and tedious. To overcome the situation, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Govt. of India has announced two alternative options to complete the Attestation of the Educational Certificate prior MEA Attestation. The two processes are as under.
As per normal process, the Educational Certificate Attestation or Authentication will be completed from HRD/HED in the first step, but alternatively the Educational Certificate will be Attested from Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM), Delhi prior Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Attestation. The Educational Certificate which will be Attested from SDM, Delhi must be Attested or Apostilled from MEA, Delhi only. SDM Attestation may be done on same day.
The Educational Attestation from Home Department, Mumbai or Mumbai Mantralaya Attestation is the oldest, well known and popular method of Attestation before Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Govt. of India certification. After the Attestation from Home Department / Mantralaya, Mumbai, the Educational Certificate can be Attested from MEA from anywhere in India centre. The Home Department, Mumbai Attestation could be completed in same day.
