How to apply for a Digital Signature Certificate? – A detailed process
At GETMEONLINE, our professionals will help you get your DSC in just three simple steps:
Step 1: Collect basic details
We will collect basic details like Name, Gender, Address, Nationality, Country, Email Id, Mobile number, and the usage type of DSC you are applying for. It could be for company incorporation, MCA e-filing, IT filing, GST filing, Foreign trade, e-Tenders or personal use. Accordingly, we will guide you in selecting the right class.
Step 2: Submission of supporting documents
All the necessary documents like PAN card, address proof, passport, etc. with relevant attestation will be collected.
Step 3: Documents Validation
Once the payment is made and the information is verified against the PAN card as in the Income Tax portal, we will validate your documents in two ways:
Video recording: You will receive a video link to your registered mobile number and email address, where you need to record your personal information like name, DOB, etc. and send it to us.
SMS: You will then receive an SMS with the DSC application ID and a mobile number to which you need to reply with your DSC application ID, name, mobile number and email ID.
Upon successful verification we will dispatch your Digital Signature Certificate USB token, which is a password-protected physical device containing your digital signature.
A USB token also called e-token, dongle or digital signature has a special built-in software that recognises and opens your digital signature.
