@Anil_Gupta Thanks! The GPA template that i currently have requires the Attorney elected’s signature and passport size photograph. Do you know if i can leave that field blank and get the rest of the document which includes the executant’s details attested by the consulate?

Hi @Pri
Usually, when you go for Indian embassy attestation, you leave the space for Indian person’s sign and photo as they are not available in USA.
