Digital Signature is a secured key and is somewhat equal to a handwritten signature. These Digital signatures are mainly responsible for establishing authentication, keeping the integrity of the shared data alive, and non-repudiation.
A digital signature certificate is issued by a Certifying Authority, registered under CCA. Also, they have been recognized under the IT Act, 2000.
Any individual and entities wanting to get their income tax filed, GST Filing and more, should have an exclusive digital signature certificate. These DSCs will also help them in making their filing work easy and fast.
Furthermore, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs has made it mandatory for companies to file all reports, applications, and forms using a digital signature only.
