Self-attestation will be boon to the public: Balbir

Stating that the recent approval granted in favour of ‘Self attestation policy” for its implementation in our state will prove to be beneficial to maximum population across Jammu and Kashmir, BJP State Spokesperson Balbir Ram Rattan said that it is yet one more gift to the people from Narendra Modi led BJP government at the centre.

Balbir said that under this policy, no one will be required to get his or her documents attested by a gazetted officer or run after notary for getting affidavits for various purposes. He said that in the past, it had been mandatory requirement that every one applying for any advertised post or government related work was to produce /enclose the copies of the documents duly attested by a gazetted officer or notary. On complying with that requirement, the public was put to great inconvenience and hardship.
The BJP Spokesperson said that the students, unemployed youth were affected by the requirement of getting documents attested and even more affected were the people living in remote and far flung areas, where one had to first look for some gazetted officer in local vicinity or travel long distance to get documents attested. It also caused financial burden and wastage of time.
Terming the policy as also reflection of the concern of the Prime Minister Narenda Modi towards the common citizens, Balbir Ram Rattan said that the public will not have to face any more harassment on account of the running after the gazetted officers and also it will save their money and time. He expressed hope that the policy will be implemented in Jammu and Kashmir at the earliest to enable the people to attest their documents themselves.
