A Virtual Signature is an electronic authentication mechanism and the simplest way of signing documents as it inscribes the normal hand written signature of a person in a digital form.
However, a normal handwritten signature can be easily manipulated and challenged but this is not the case with our Virtual Signatures
To increase the security of our Virtual Signatures, the virtually signed document is mapped and can be easily accessed along with the Audit Trail.
This Audit Trail mentions the time, place and location of the document at various stages and thus helps to identify and ascertain the security towards the signature placed over it.
It does not require authentication of it by any authority for it to be legally binding.
For initiating a Virtual Signature, you will receive an OTP (One Time Password) along with a link on your email address.
Once you open this link and enter the OTP, read and sign the document, that itself will reflect your consent and intention to approve of the contents of the document.
Simply draw your Virtual Signature with the help of your computer mouse in the canvas that opens on the screen to create your virtual signature and if you are using a phone/tablet draw your signature using your finger right on your screen. Its that simple
Human Resource (HR) Documents, Approval letters, Non-Disclosure Agreements, employment contracts, entry-exit forms, approval letters, enrolment forms, communications, relieving and settlement letters, suspension or termination orders or any other simple forms that need to be signed/executed every day in any business.
For all the afore-mentioned documents, Virtual Signature is sufficient and valid as per Section 10A of the Information Technology Act, 2000. However, if a particular document requires a ‘Signature’ as per Regulatory or Statutory requirements, Virtual Signatures may not be suitable. In such cases, our e-Signature using Aadhar should be used.
Repetitive documentation that merely requires approval from a person can be validly executed using Virtual Signatures.
