Foe detailed information please visit,
Check the guideline from the board for attesting part. but it is not needed as document verification will be done by the end. if any one has false document will be rejected then and there. still check it from the information broucher provided to you while filling the form.
Normally in any entrance they don't say to attest it. if any original document is not there then they are attested from the institution to prove that they are verified. Better to make it clear so check it.
Hope it helps!
