As per EPFO circular dated 6th October 2017, EPFO has now introduced the free Aadhaar based e-Sign in addition to DSC to be used by Employers. It is very easy to use in comparison to DSC. Authorised signatory of establishments whose DSC is already registered can directly activate their e-Sign by providing Aadhaar at Unified Portal. Authorised signatory whose DSC is not available at Unified Portal can register their eSign at Unified Portal and get it approved from concerned EPFO field office. Once authorized signatory is registered fore-Sign, he/she can sign documents by getting OTP on the mobile registered with Aadhaar. User manual for registering e-Sign is attached herewith for your ready reference. It is requested to encourage the employers to avail this facility. Further EPFO has urged the respective Branch offices to immediately approve the e-Sign registration requests received from employers.
