Formerly it was political appointment. On the recommendation of politicians any body could have become a Notary, to avoid this I think in the year 2007 Notary act is amended. Application will be called if notary is required. After that you will have to file an application, interview will be conducted then selection. This interview is also drama. Without political influence you can get notary post.
