Digital Signature

A Digital Signature establishes the identify of the sender of an electronic document on the Internet and is the electronic equivalent of a physical signature. In India, digital signatures are utilised for online transactions such as income tax e-filing, company or LLP incorporation, annual return filing, and e-tenders, among other things. Class I, Class II, and Class III Digital Signatures are the three types of digital signatures. Digital Signatures of the Class I type are solely used to secure email communication. Company or LLP incorporation, IT Return E-Filing, Obtaining DIN or DPIN, and filing additional papers with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs and Income Tax Department all require Class II Digital Signatures. Digital Signatures of the Class III kind are mostly utilised for E-Tendering and E-Auction participation. Digital Signatures are kept on a USB drive and can be accessed via a computer to sign papers electronically.

With E-Return filing becoming essential for Income Tax Assesses with an annual income of more than Rs.5 lakhs, the demand for and use of Digital Signatures has skyrocketed. Fastrack Filing can assist you in obtaining your Digital Signature quickly and easily online. We can assist you with Digital Signature registration because Fastrack Filing is a registered partner of SIFY and E-Mudhra.

Class III Digital Signature

E-Auctions and E-Tendering use Class III Digital Signatures, which provide the highest level of assurance. To participate in its E-Tenders, government bodies such as the Indian Railways, Banks, and others require Class III Digital Signatures.


The validity of digital signatures is usually one or two years. Once the validity of the prior Digital Signature has expired, the validity of the new Digital Signature can be renewed.

If the paperwork is filed before the deadline, there is no government fee or ROC fee. However, if the corporation fails to meet the deadline of April 25, 2019, the company would be fined. Then you can still file it with an additional ROC fee of Rs. 10,000.
