Papers and affidavits at courts

Procedure for attesting affidavits written on stamp-papers should be simplified by giving attesting powers to officers of governments and their undertakings, medical and legal practitioners, chartered accountants.

Since A-4 sized is most common size of paper-sheets, all court-work from trial-stage to Supreme Court should be in this size rather than requiring full-scale (legal) sized paper in courts. It may be noted that most domestic photo-copiers are set to copy only up to A-4 sized paper-sheets.

Procedure for attesting affidavits written on stamp-papers should be simplified by giving attesting powers to officers of governments and their undertakings, medical and legal practitioners, chartered accountants, and such other categories of responsible citizens. Authorities like oath commissioners or notary-public who generally attest documents just to charge fees without any proper verification of signatures must be abolished.
