Indian Consulate and the Attestation of Documents
Because of the requires of the International Convention on the legalisation of documents, when you submit a document that has been notarised in preparation for use in India, you need to have an apostille attached to the document by the Australia Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and then the signature of the delegate of the department must be authenticated by the Indian Consulate.
The consulate requires that you fill in a ‘Miscellaneous Services Form” and provide a Self Addressed Express Post/ Registered Post/ Platinum Express Envelope with your application if you want the documents to be returned to you through the post.
The consulate charges fees based on a prescribed schedule
