eMudhra claimed that it has successfully issued over 40,000 Digital Signature Certificates (DSC) to users through the paperless route. eMudhra is a licensed Certifying Authority under the Ministry of Information Technology, India.
The company has accomplished this by integrating the new eSign services, which was launched in May 2019, with their existing DSC infrastructure. This is enabling the company to create a seamless DSC issuance process, wherein the signing, review and approval is no longer paper-driven, and bringing the overall turnaround time to as less as 5 minutes.
Technology Head of eMudhra, Vijay Kumar said that since the whole process now relies on eSign compliant e-Signatures, which itself is issued subject to an identity validation using video verification and other stringent mechanisms as prescribed by the relevant regulators, identity validation has become a seamless exercise for our approving authority.
Talking about the capabilities of eMudhra, he added that, “We are equipped with a state-of-the-art central processing center, which enables us to process all requests as and when they arrive, and ensure a quick turnaround. This involves automated and semi-automated checks towards augmenting security and compliance.”
“We fully support the government’s ambition of ‘Digital India,’ and take pride in eliminating the last mile paper in all the underlying processes. Towards this end, we have integrated the new eSign capabilities with our existing offerings,” Chairman of eMudhra, V Srinivasan, said.
Also we see a great potential in this integration. Not only does this integration eliminate paper-trail and storage complexities, but also provide a hassle free user experience to the customer, he added.
eMudhra is a licensed Certifying Authority under the Ministry of Information Technology, India, and has issued digital signatures to over 40 million customers in India. The company also holds the Chairmanship of Asia PKI Consortium, Chairmanship of the India PKI Consortium, and is a member of the Cloud Signature Consortium.
Srinivasan believes that at eMudhra, innovation is one of our core principles and our product development efforts are aimed towards building cutting edge IP that can accelerate the world’s transition to a secure integrated digital society.
