The GST Enrollment Application can be signed either by using Digital Signature (DSC) or by E-Signing. The use of DSC is mandatory for Company & LLP and optional for others. Any person other than Company & LLP can E-Sign the application.

The facility to E-Sign has been enabled in the GST Common Portal from today i.e. 25-01-2017.E-Sign can be done using Aadhar Number which should be linked to a valid Mobile Number. It means that if Mobile Number is not registered with Aadhar, then the 1st thing would be to get it amended to included Mobile Number in which One Time Password (OTP) would be sent.

In the ‘Verification’ Tab, there would be option ‘Submit with DSC’ or ‘Submit with E-Signature’. Once the button ‘Submit with E-Signature’ is clicked, a new pop window is displayed with a Declaration as below:

GST E-Signature

I hereby agree to authenticate myself using my AADHAAR through C-DAC eSign Service and affix my signature generated through eSign on the above Application Form.

Note: Please ensure you have subscribed to C-DAC eSign Service before proceeding.

Upon clicking the blue link, an external site (e-mudra) is opened which would ask that the eSign Service can be subscribed for 30 days on payment of Rs. 100 and for 365 days on payment of Rs. 500 which seems to be unnecessarily provided and is misleading. The link should be immediately removed by GSTN as it suggested to subscribe for eSign Service on payment of fee.
Ignoring the ‘Note’ at the bottom of the Declaration, one can click ‘AGREE’ and OTP shall be sent to the registered Mobile Number which can be entered to complete the verification process and a message informing successful submission of the Form would be displayed.
