Who can be called a Gazetted officer? First of all a gazetted officer must be a government official.
In India, a official Central Government Publication named Gazette publishes the promotions of certain government officials. Those officers whose name appears in this Gazette are termed as Gazetted Officers.
Indian Govt has employees are classified as class 1 to class 4. All class 1 employees are Gazetted officers.
Examples of Class 1 employee examples
So these officers can attest a photo, xerox of certificates etc.
Apart from them a Public Notary, Magistrate can attest also.
A notary public can issue a character certificate.
I am of the opinion that Advocates who are also appointed as Notaries are also Gazetted Officers. As an Advocate is an officer of the Court and when appointed as a Notary his name is published in the Official Gazette of The Government Of India whereby he is empowered to exercise the powers conferred under The Indian Notaries Act and rules. Please clarify.
