Signing of OA and annexures CAT

In Labour & Service Law
I am trying to file a case in Central Administrative Tribunal. As per rules, copies of all annexes and OA has to be filed in triplicate. My query is, 1. Do i have to sign all the sets separately or signing one set and making photocopies for other sets will suffice? 2. As per CAT rules, Impugned order has to be attested by a gazetted officer or a legal practitioner. Does attestation by Notary public satisfy the requirement?

CAT requires that all the copies of annexures should be signed by the applicant. this is a mandatory requirement, otherwise it will be kept in scrutiny by the filing section.
the impugned order can be attested by the legal practitioner.
before COVID there was a mandatory requirement for affidavits to be attested by the public notary. but this requirement has been relaxed and exemption has been given.
