Indian Home Department (HD) Attestation in Chennai

Certification attestation is a document verification process that undergoes a serious analysis and authentication of the documents. This verification begins with the State Home Department, a regulatory body authorized by the central government to authenticates personal documents such as marriage certificates and birth certificates originated from the respective state. Hence, the documents have to be submitted with the Ministery of External Affairs (MEA) which is the sole authority in India for document legalization. The Home Department is responsible for the authentication of the certificate, that the particular document originated from the respective state is genuine or not.

Below are some of the important aspects of Home Department authentication.

  • The entire process of the certificate authentication from the beginning is accomplished by the State Home Department on the same day.
  • Unabridged certification, computer printouts, etc., are not entertained by the Ministery for the legalization, hence the only original copy of the certificate will be authenticated by the Home Department.
  • The physical presence of the individual is mandatory at the office of the Home Department with an application form and original copies of the required documents.
