Understanding the DSC
Government of India came forward with an objective to promote digitization in the country. With emergence of technology, majority of statutory formalities are getting furnished online and DSC is mandatory for such procedures.
DSC is essentially an electronic form of signature that is equivalent to physical signature of an individual. DSC is used for online applications and return filing purposes, including LLP Incorporation, Annual Return filing, E-Tenders , and others. By attaining a registered DSC, individuals get their identity established digitally which is also mandatory in majority of Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) Procedures.
DSC is majorly Classified into Three Categories:
- Class I DSC – This form of certificate is used only for securing e-mail communications and not for any statutory registrations.
- Class II DSC – Entities are obliged to acquire this form of DSC as it is required in filling online forms related to MCA and Income Tax (IT) Department, including IT Return Filing, Director Identification Number (DIN) / Designated Partner Identification Number (DPIN), Company Incorporation, and others.
- Class III DSC – This form is required for e-Tendering and e-Auctions by certain government authorities like Indian Railways as well as Financial Institutions and Banks.
