Difference between Aadhaar esign and Digital Signatures

In the traditional digital signature model, an individual signer will have to obtain a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) from a Certifying Authority licensed by the CCA under the Information Technology (IT) Act, 2000.

In order to obtain a DSC, the signer must undergo a strenuous identity verification process and the private key of the signer is stored in a hardware (usually a USB dongle issued by the Certifying Authority which needs to be used every time the signer wants to sign a document). Such tokens have a validity of 2-3 years and the signer will have to repeat this process to renew the digital signature token.

Such hardware tokens cannot scale to say billions of people. Or a normal citizen cannot be made to go through this process to occasionally sign key documents (e.g Insurance claim or Self certified letter to the bank). In order to facilitate such esign, a convenient OTP based esign is introduced which vastly simplifies document signing by anyone, anytime.

This is the basis for introducing Aadhaar esign whereby the user can sign without the need for obtaining a hardware token and there is no need for strenuous identity verification to sign documents digitally. Any document can be signed instantly by entering the Aadhaar Number and OTP. And they are legally recognized and timeless.
