A copy of a document is a certified copy only if it contains a certificate of a public officer that it is a true copy of the document contained in his office.

As per Indian law - When a document is said to be attested in relation to an instrument when two witnesses each of whom has signed or affix his mark to the instrument, or has seen other person sign the instrument in the present and by direction of the executant of such instrument or has received from the executant personal knowledge of his signature or mark or of the signature of such other person and each of whom has signed the instrument in the presence of the executant

It shall not be necessary that more than one of such witness shall be present at the same time and no particular attestation shall be necessary.

A photocopy of a docu- ment, judgment, or record that is signed and attested to as an accurate and a complete reproduction of the original document by a public official in whose custody the original has been placed for safekeeping.

A certified copy is admissible as evidence in a lawsuit when the original document cannot be produced because it has been lost or destroyed. This rule, which considers a certified copy to be secondary evidence unless circumstances of loss or destruction warrant its treatment as primary evidence, is known as the best evidence rule. State and federal rules of evidence govern the use of a certified copy in their respective judicial proceedings.

Attested copy means and includes the document identified as it is, with which, comarison to the original document or original hearing or original reading or original in nature of any thing and signed over it

certified copy is always a copy that is issued by a public authority, who posseses its original.
attested copy is true copy of a original document which is in possession of individual himself.it can be self attested by its holder also.
