Class 2

A Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) establishes the identity of the users while filing or sending documents electronically through the internet. Similar to how a handwritten signature establishes the identity and/or consent of the signee in a paper document, a digital signature certificate establishes the identity and/or of the signee in electronic documents. In India, all Government Departments accept digitally signed documents from CCA approved certifying authorities like Capricorn, eMudhra, Sify, N-Code, vSign etc.

Class 2 Digital Signatures are used to verify the identity of a person against a pre-verified database. This type of Digital Signature is used for efiling of documents with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, GST and the Income Tax Department. Class 2 Digital Signatures are issued to a person on a USB token after verifying self-attested copies of identity/address proof. It is Class 2 DSC tokens that are used for company registration, LLP registration, Income Tax return filing, GST registration, GST return filing, MCA annual return filing etc.
