AP HRD is a process to get authentication on documents issued by Andhra Pradesh goverment. We have URGENT and Normal processes available. At present the Andhra Pradesh HRD is done in Vijayawada PWD guest house.

HRD & GAD are not different; on Marriage and Birth Certificates the seals will be “ATTESTED” and this will be called as GAD. But on Degree or study certificates “AUTHENTICATED” will come instead of “ATTESTED”, this is called as HRD. Both are one and same NRI processes.
