The new company law makes it compulsory for both – an Indian as well as a foreign director of every Indian company to have a Digital Signature Certificate.
A DSC is the electronic counterpart of the hand-written signature. It establishes the unique identity of an individual. If an individual signs any digital document with DSC, he cannot step back or deny the terms of the document later.
A DSC is more authentic and secures a way to electronically send the data, messages, files and documents electronically, which makes it faster and easier as well.
Types of Digital Signature Certificate
There are 3 types of Digital Signature Certificates i.e. Class-1, Class-2, and Class-3.
