Earlier people only knew about the HRD, ministry in New Delhi. This is no more existing. Since July 2007 the HRD ministry was delegated this work to the respective Home Departments of each state. Since the majority of NRI’s residing in the GCC countries is from Kerala, the Govt. of India has made an exception by assigning the task of placing the attestation procedure to NORKA centers (Norka doing the attestation of educational certificate).

The attestation procedure and duration varies from time to time depending upon the rules as assigned by the home country. For more details please send us the scan copy of the certificates to or call us.
