Further to my other posts in which I mentioned that I'm filing Writ Petition in High court of Karnataka against MEA and Regional Passport Office Bangalore.
I sent a POA to my lawyer after Notarization. I didn't Appostille it from FCO (Foreign & Commenwealth Office) and didn't get it attested from High Commission Of India London.
My lawyer has filed the writ petition only to be refused by the Judge after 6 months. I'm not sure why High Court took 6 months to admit my case which required immediate attention and if they had to reject the application then they should have done at the time of filing the case itself.
Firstly my lawyer should have advised me earlier that I need to get it attested from High Commission of India before sending it to him.
Next I'm doing POA again.
I've notarized it and then I'll get Appostille from FCO office in London, after that I'll get it attested from, High Commission Of India London.
High commission Of India in London might refuse to attest because my passport is expired, and this is the reason why I've to file the case. So it is chicken and egg situation here.
AFAIK Indian court should accept Appostille as India is signatory to Geneva convention. Notary also advised the same.
Can anyone let me know if High Court will accept the Appostille Power Of Attorney or not?
