Steps to apply for a Digital Signature Certificate

STEP 1: Visit to the Certifying Authorities website

In India, approximately 15 CAs are licensed to issue Digital Certificates. The list of Certifying Authorities is provided below, along with a link to their website. Visit any CA website, navigate to the DSC Class 3 registration/application page, and complete out the form.

STEP 2: Fill the necessary details

The following information must be entered on the DSC application form:

DSC class.
Format: Sign & Encrypt or Sign Only.
Name and contact information of the applicant.
Private Mail Address.
GST Identity & Number Specifics of the Proof Papers.
A document proving your identification.
A document proving the address.
The Attitudinal Officer.
Payment Information.
After completing all the required fields, you need to e-sign the declaration and attach a current photo. Verify the form’s completion in its entirety. Once the form is filled out, print it off and save it.

STEP 3: Proof of identity and address

The supporting documents (identification and address evidence) uploaded to the DSC application need to be attested by an attesting official. Make sure the accompanying documents display the attesting officer’s signature and seal.

You can choose this option if the CAs are providing Aadhaar eKYC-based authentication. You can upload any supporting documents if you choose this option.

With copies of the original documents that have been self-attested and the original supporting documentation, you can also approach the CAs directly. Under such circumstances, attesting officers are not required to attest supporting documents.

As supporting documents, you can also upload a letter/certificate issued by a bank and certified by the bank manager containing your name, PAN, and address. Other attestation is not required in this circumstance.

Certain CAs may also ask you to upload an e-verification video that includes your original supporting documents to complete eKYC.
