  • Even if your previously registered DSC is active, you will have to register it again on the new e-Filing portal. Due to technical and data security difficulties, DSC data is not moved from the old system.
  • Registering a Digital Signature Certificate is a manual that explains how to do so.
  1. Overview:

Registered users can use this service to do the following:

  • When your DSC registration expires, you must re-register.
  • If your DSC hasn't expired, re-register.
  • Create a DSC for the Principal Contact.

All DSC users must re-register their DSC on the new portal utilising the ‘Register DSC' feature. Due to security and technological concerns, DSCs registered on the previous e-filing system will not be moved to the new platform.
