Harnessing India Stack’s open digital infrastructure can help banks replace costly and time-consuming procedures involving document management and verification.
FSS eSign and FSS Digilocker Gateway services enable Application Service Providers to create a paperless service experience for customers by invoking India Stack’s open APIs including Aadhaar Authentication, eSign, and Digilocker.
Digital signatures obtained via FSS eSign Gateway are legally binding as the solution connects with empaneled eSign Service Provider (ESPs), licensed Certifying Authorities (CAs) to procure the digital signature.
Users of the eSign service can also access their documents available in the central digital lockers linked to their Aadhaar number, digitally sign documents and share with requestors to open a new account, apply for a loan and eNACH.
FSS eSign Gateway users can sign and manage documents from any device - desktop or mobile. The system can also fetch documents to be self-attested from an Aadhaar-holder’s personal DigiLocker account.

FSS eSign consumes the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) API’s for instant eKYC and digitally sign documents by using a one-time password.
Manage and Share Documents
Users can push documents to their personal DigiLocker account and share a unique link to the digitally signed document via mobile, SMS and e-mail with requesters.
