Syed Hamed Hussain Jaffery, president, A.P. Shiya Youth Conference, sought opening of more counters at General Administration Department (GAD) in Secretariat for verification and issue of attested copies of educational certificates. Presently, there was only one counter and it was unable to cope with the rush.

In a statement, Mr. Jaffery sought the intervention of the Chief Minister in resolving the resolve the problem. A large number of persons from all over the State come for attestation of their certificates but only 30 persons were allowed to submit their certificates per day. Opening of more counters would help, he said. Mr. Jaffery also wanted introduction of online appointment system as was being done for Passport applications.
