HRD office location and entry details
HRD office is located inside Secretariat, Chennai. Its open from (Monday-Friday) excluding public holidays and they accept applications from 10 AM to 1 PM. Its better to reach there before 11.30 AM to give enough time for you to finish the formalities.
For those new to Chennai, it is just 1-2 kms from Chennai Beach Railway station (one of three main stations in Chennai). One can take auto or bus from the station and reach in 5 mins. Outside at the entrance, you will be asked for purpose of the visit and here you should tell them “HRD attestation” and some times they ask you to show the certificate to confirm it. And then there will be routine checkup of bag and they will ask you stand in queue to enter. The queue can be sometimes long if there is a meeting, but it will move faster. Upon reaching the entrance, you will have to enter your details in registry and mention purpose of visit as HRD attestation. Once again you will be frisked at the entrance and then you can enter the Secretariat. After that, you will need to find the new building where they issue “Gate pass” to officially enter any of the buildings. This new building is found when you walk straight from entrance and you can ask anyone incase you cannot find. Opposite to the new building you will find entrance to Gate 7 where the HRD office is located.
What time and days does it open for acceptance and delivery?
The documents are accepted Monday-Friday (except holidays) from 0930-1200 9:30AM-12PM) and are delivered the same day around 1500-1700 (3PM-5PM).
Does it cost anything?
Yes it does. It costs at the time of this writing 50 Rupees. Cash is NOT accepted. The ONLY ACCEPTABLE form of payment is an “Indian Postal Money Order” for Rupees 50. It should be drawn in favor of “PAO MEA, New Chennai”. You can buy this from any post office in any part of India. At the moment the Postal Order is also sold in the premises of the CPV-MEA but only after 10 AM. People do a “black” of the Money Order to the tune of Rupees 200 sometimes (as the gossip went in the line/queue). I would strongly recommend you to get the money order before you join the line. A better idea is to buy it from your own city.
What do I need? Just the original document?
Well duh! The answer is no. You need a verified and countersigned document. In my case it was my marriage certificate issued from Chandigarh. It was first counter signed by the SDM then the DC office and then the JOINT HOME SECRETARY. The MEA actually also countersigns the document based on the Home Department’s signature. You also need a photocopy of the document after it has been countersigned by your respective home department, and you need the 50 Rupee money order.
Can this be done by mail?
Yes and no. The right answer is NO. Someone needs to stand in line for you (usually 1-2 hours) and then collect the document also. This can be you, your friend or a host of touts that make a living by doing this for you and returning the document by courier. So the answer now seems YES if you have a friend or a known tout there. The tout rates at the time of writing to just get the attestation done are about 100 Rupees (they will tell you hoe they want the money transferred to them). If the document has a problem, means you can’t get it signed by the SDM/DC/Home Dept then of courser the rates are high (about 1000 Rupees, but worth it as they save you the headaches, but I would strongly be against that unless the time factor is against you or you cannot get the document countersigned).
How much time it took you to get your document done?
Except for the wasted trip to Chennai for the lack of the above information, it took me 2 days for the SDM, same day for the DC Office and the Home Dept. But this is for Chandigarh. For other parts of the country it will be difficult.
Do I need to get my documents countersigned?
The bottom line is YES. Be it any certificate. The educational certificates like mark-sheets have a special procedure. There is an older post just like this which is also a must read before you do something (http://abisurd.blogspot.com/2007/10/attestation-by-mea-ministry-of-external.html).
Describe the Apostille, use, and validity for me?
An Apostille is a government issued stamp or sticker applied to the original document thus legalizing it in all the signatories of the Hague convention which took place on October 5, 1961. Yes, that single stamp/sticker has so much power. The Apostille issued in New Chennai is a sticker about 10×10 cm (don’t panic if the size increases or decreases). It is a colorful sticker. It has printed material on it stating who issued it and why. Then 2 stamps are also affixed on the sticker so that you cannot peel it off and put on another document. It is put either on the document or on the back of it. IT CANNOT BE PUT ON A LAMINATED DOCUMENT. So please do not get that document laminated just yet. The Apostille is valid only for sometime in certain countries (to the tune of 6 months). They may ask for a fresh stamp and Chennai people are really fussy about revalidating an originally issued Apostille sticker. Better get the sticker issued about a month before you intend to use the document for any embassy, study abroad, etc.
Any exceptions for tout and procedural prices?
A tout told me that “Divorce Decrees” and “Adoption papers” are very costly. She told me that they are in the tune of 10,000-30,000 Rupees. I don’t need them but I am just listing it for the purpose of knowledge. I cannot confirm this. If you are spending that amount better to go in person or have a known person make that query for you.
