Digital Signature

What is a Digital Signature?

A Digital Signature is equivalent to the physical signature, as it establishes the identity of the sender of an electronic document on the Internet. Digital Signatures are required in India for online compliances like Income Tax E-Filing, Company or LLP Incorporation, Filing of Annual Returns, E-Tenders and many more.
There are three different types of Digital Signatures:

  • Class I: Digital Signatures of class I are only used for securing email communication.
  • Class II: Digital Signatures OF class II are used for Company or LLP Incorporation, IT Return E-Filing, GST Return Filling, Obtaining DIN or DPIN, and filing other forms with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs and the Department of the income tax and Goods and Service Tax (GST).
  • Class III Digital Signature: Digital signatures of type III are used mainly for E-Tendering and for participating in E-Auctions.

Digital Signatures are in the form of a USB E-Token, where in the Digital Signature Certificate is stored in a USB Drive and can be accessed through a computer to sign documents electronically whenever required. The requirement and prevalence of Digital Signatures has increased manifold since Income tax return filings.
