Aadhaar Online eSign


Step 1: Based on your contact information available with the person sending the document to you for signing, you will receive a signing link on your email and/or phone. The email invite looks like the picture above. 



Step 2: Once you have clicked on the ‘Sign’ button (for an email invite) or the signing link (for a mobile invite) you will be redirected to the Leegality Gateway. Here you can review the entire document - go through the contents, look at the placement of the signatures etc. Once satisfied, click on Proceed.


Step 3: Enter the OTP received on your email and/or phone and click on Proceed.



Step 4: Choose the form of authentication you want to use for your Aadhaar eSign (in this post we will be covering authentication through OTP). Once chosen, click Proceed.



Step 5: The next step is to give your consent for your Aadhaar eSign to be used to authenticate the document. Check the consent box and click on ‘Sign Document’. 


Step 6: You will be redirected to the NSDL eSign page. Here you will have to check the consent box (indicating your consent permitting NSDL to use your Aadhaar number for authentication purposes) and enter your Aadhaar number. Click on ‘Send OTP’ once done.



Step 7: Upon doing so you will receive an OTP (One Time Password) on your registered email/mobile number. Enter the OTP you receive here and click on ‘Verify OTP’.



Voila! You have successfully eSigned your document.


You can view the signed document once all the signatories have signed. A copy of the completed document along with the audit trail is sent instantly to the sender and all the signatories.

DSC Token



Step 1: Once you have opened the signing link and clicked on Proceed, insert the DSC token into your PC and run the Leegality DSC Utility. You can do so by accessing the link provided in the signing journey to download the utility setup, or you may install it using the link provided here.




Step 2: Once the Leegality DSC Utility has been detected, you will have to check for the token driver error and then run the same. Token Drivers can be downloaded here.



Step 3: Once the utility and the token drivers are up and running, a pop-up window will appear, highlighting the certificates that are contained in the DSC token. Select the relevant certificate. 


In case both the signature certificate and encryption certificate appear in the pop-up, then select the signature type certificate.



Step 4: Once you have selected the certificate, the utility will recognise your DSC certificate details as shown above. Once the certificate has been successfully detected, click on Proceed.



Step 5: Check the consent box to indicate your consent for use of your Digital Signature Certificate saved in your DSC Token for the purposes of eSigning the document. Then click on “Sign Document”.


Step 6: A pop-up asking for your DSC Token PIN will appear. Enter the PIN here and click on ‘Login’.




It’s as easy as that. Upon successfully entering the correct PIN, your digital signature certificate will get affixed to your document.
