Fee for attesting certificates and photos by Gazetted officers.
I hope I am asking the right question at the right place.
Can a gazetted Officer can ask for money or any kind of fee, to attest certificate copies or photos for the purpose of education or employment from candidates ?
This is one such issue where common ppl are affected more . I am from kerala where I have never payed or asked for any money for attestation. But In bangalore, my friend had to pay. A Govt. Doctor asked for 50 Rs as fee but no receipt or anything like that.
I feel this is corruption .. against the society, common man.
If this is corruption, what can I do as a punitive measure ?
Please get me the correct information. I am ready to act. .
