Once everything is successfully reviewed the notary public officials place a Notary Stamp on the back of your bank statement.  

State/SDM Attestation – In this third step your documents get ready for either State Attestation or SDM (Sub Divisional Magistrate) Attestation. According to your requirements, you can obtain an apostillation for a bank statement through any of these attestation methods. 

State Attestation –  In state attestation, verification is done by the state that originally issued your bank statement.

If you want to obtain an apostille through state attestation, then you might have to wait 30 working days or more. This is so because many government gets involved in this procedure, making State attestation a time-consuming and expensive attestation method.
