Can you imagine signing a service agreement or on-boarding a customer completely online in a matter of seconds without having to deal with photocopies and courier services?

Any Aadhaar holder can sign a document in digital format using biometric or OTP authentication. The service is an easy and secure way to sign a digital document, anytime, anywhere.
