This Aadhaar e-signature is unique for a person and can be used digitally to sign on documents and agreements.
The encrypted signature facility can be put to use only after the consent of the Aadhaar holder. In the area where documentation has to be completed digitally, Aadhaar e-signatures will replace the wet signatures by hand.

Through an open API, the e-signature service is integrated to the service delivery application for generating an e-Signature. Necessary verification is done in respect of your aadhaar details and the procedure of e-KYC is completed. After the authentication is done, the e-signature is created.
