What is meant by Individual Acknowledgement?
There is a very little difference in verification and acknowledgement. There are some situations in which it is not enough to verify a particular document by a department but the person who signed the document needs to be presented personally in front of the clerk of the department and acknowledge that he in fact signed the document and takes all the responsibility or liabilities that might come with signing the document. This is known as acknowledgement by an individual.
