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.
