Aadhaar-linked e-Signature facility launched to digitise documents
05 August 2016 Current Affairs: Online legal documentation startup LegalDesk.com on 3 August 2016 launched the electronic signing feature eSignDesk that allows people to sign documents digitally from remote places.

With over a billion Aadhaar cardholders and about 25 million transactions taking place every quarter, digital signatures are expected to save time, money and paper.

Highlights of the eSignDesk Facility :  Built on the Aadhaar platform, eSign is an initiative of the Union Government and meant to save money and time for citizens. Its users need to have a registered mobile number associated with the Aadhaar card. 

The service will be available on www.eSignDesk.com and will be offered for free to the first 1000 users.The documents signed electronically will be legally valid in the country. 

The e-signature deters fraud to a large extent as it cannot be replicated or forged, and the content of the document cannot be tampered with.
