    Notary Public appointment letters had been issued to the eligible Advocates in June 2019 for Mumbai, Maharashtra. Certificate for practice is not issued yet. Is it not delayed for an unreasonable period, sir?
    Can the appointed Notary Public is allowed to practice on the strength of appointment letter issued by the competent authority?
    Answer is expected from the Hon’ble Minister Shri. Ravi Shankar Prasad ji.
