it is better you avoid it. it is a simple morality than legality that needs to play vital role. avoid encouraging such acts.
you can act as attesting witness if you are signing in your original name . these days for attestation purposes also your PAN card details and photo are affixed on registered .documents . don't act as witness in some other name . if fraud comes to light you can land into big trouble
