What are the different types of Digital Signatures and their uses?

There are three types of DSCs

Class I type is used only for securing email communication

Class II type is used for Company or LLP Incorporation, IT Return E-Filing, obtaining DIN or DPIN and filing other forms with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs and Income Tax Department

Class III type is used mainly for E-Tendering and for participating in E-Auctions

For most business compliance, Class II digital signature suffices.

What is the validity of a digital signature?

Digital Signatures usually come with a validity of one or two years. The validity of the DSC can be renewed once the term of the previous DSC expires.

Will my DSC be renewed under the same plan?

Renewal of DSC is not part of the plan. For that, you will need to buy the DSC plan at the applicable rates. It is mandatory to inform the govt. authorities about the expiry of the old DSC and issue of a new one.
