What is a digital signature certificate?
A digital signature certificate is issued by the Government of India, authorizing a Certifying Authority (CA) like eMudhra to verify one's identity. It is recommended to use one's digital signature certificate to e-sign important documents that are to be submitted to service providers in the government, public, and private sector.

How does it work?
- Visit the eMudhra eSign website and create your account.
- Verify your identity using Aadhar, PAN, etc, through their online KYC process. Your identity will be verified in the background.
- Upon successful verification, you can e-sign documents with your own certificate, without carrying any hardware token.
How does this integration work?
- Zoho Sign administrators enable the integration for other users in their organization.
- Once enabled, users can connect their Zoho Sign account and eMudhra eSign Service.
- Users can then follow the regular steps to sign documents themselves or send them out to collect signatures.
- If users would like to sign the documents using eMudhra, then after filling in the fields in Zoho Sign, they should select the option Sign with eMudhra.
- Users will be redirected to the eMudhra eSign Service website, and upon successful authentication, the document will be signed with their certificate.
- The signed document will then be saved in their Zoho Sign account, as usual.
