The DSC is issued to individuals by a certifying agency which the Controller of Certification Agencies or CCA has duly appointed. An individual looking to file various government forms online as GST returns, company annual returns, income tax returns, and duly filing other statutory forms, is required to obtain a Class 3 DSC. Companies looking to get registered on the MCA portal online and file returns or attach requisite documents are required to attach the DSC of the relevant persons.
