Notary Public

(Querist) 28 June 2011 This query is : Resolved 
What is the procedure or rule to apply for the Notary in from Central Govt ?

Is their any prescribe Form or to type an formal application ?

adv. rajeev ( rajoo ) (Expert) 28 June 2011
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.
