Below is the requested information;
Notarized and attested is almost the same thing, and here in Pk, we only need to get our documents attested,
By saying "Certified translation" it is implied that the translated version should not only be self made, it has to be certified/attested/notarized to prove it is the genuine translation, You need to get a document translated and then get the original translation attested (which is referred to the document bearing exact and accurate translated information).
For educational documents, i'm personally sending all original mark sheets (from Metric till last) and attested photo copies of Metric Certificate, Intermediate Certificate, and Degrees, i'll attach a cover letter stating that our culture does not support stamped university sealed envelopes and how difficult it is to convince our university Registrars for this purpose. You can do the same as per your understanding. If you decide to send all originals then there is no harm in doing so as they will be returned to you at the end of the process, for docs that need translation, you can send the original attested translation with the original document.
Original Police Certificates
4 Photographs per person in an envelope or a small plastic bag, with the persons' name written at the back of each photo (Plain white background) sizes are mentioned in the Visa Office checklist.
Print of the AOR mail placed at the top of the application bundle,
Yes, Application forms require Fresh Dates and Signatures (you can use the photo copy of other pages and take prints of filled pages that require dates and signatures)
Bank statement of past 3 months should be fine, letter from the bank is a Funds Maintenance Certificate and can be easily obtained by requesting your particular bank, it shows the account number, title of account, and the funds present in your account on the bank's letter head.
I'm not aware of Property Papers being accepted, as we have slight problems in presenting the current property value which can later be affected by market conditions. (other members having knowledge about it can give you a better input)
For other docs, Original Document and an attested translation attached with it will do just fine.
I hope I've answered all your queries, these are my inputs although other members may have different views or comments based on their knowledge or experience.
Dear All especially Mirza G and someone from punjab university

How many fotographs we need to send for each person
Once we get the AOR, We shall take print out of that E-mail and send with full application
About the application forms to send
We shall send the original fotocopy (or the original duplicate print out of the Original Application) of the Original application sent to CIO in NS. As per my info acquired from different forums one has to RESIGN and REDATE the last pages where sign and date is required according to the new date on which we are sending out the full application to CHC, instead of sending the already signed (fotocopy of the original application with older dates). IS IT SO?
Proof of Funds:We shall have to send two pieces of evidence
a) Bank statement for the last 3 or 6 months?
b) Letter from Bank (Would somebody if one has obtained such a letter please write down the format and text of such a letter .
C) Could property owned and the one for which installments are being paid be used as an evidence? What if we get a letter from the construction company that following person has paid such and such amount to us and has a house reserved for him in this scheme and shall be delivered to him on such and such date and he could sell this out anytime during this process if a suitable customer found?
Shall we have to get all the documents copies notarized or attested the same way (as i went to get notarized from notary public here and asked him to write the statement "I certify this to be a true copy of etc etc). He said to me i can not do this as i dont have this much time yes i can attest or notarize it the way we normally do i.e. sign and put a stamp.
Any more question please welcome to write down. I have written down these in plain simple english as my english is not very good and i get problem in getting the meaning of the stuff written in guide.
I have written down every thing as i could have understood if you find anything wrong or missing please rectify it
