Overview of DSC for Foreign Citizens
DSC stands for Digital Signature Certificate, which is a secure electronic key that is used to authenticate the identity of the signer of a document or an electronic transaction. It is issued by a Certifying Authority (CA) and is used to verify the authenticity and integrity of electronic documents.
For foreign citizens, obtaining a DSC in India is similar to the process followed by Indian citizens. However, foreign citizens need to provide additional documents such as their passport and visa, as well as proof of their address in India.
To obtain a DSC, foreign citizens need to first select a Certifying Authority and fill out the necessary application form. They will then need to submit their personal information and supporting documents for verification. Once the documents have been verified, the Certifying Authority will issue the DSC, which can be used to sign electronic documents and transactions.
It is important to note that DSCs are typically issued for a limited period of time and need to be renewed periodically. Foreign citizens should also ensure that their DSC is accepted by the Indian government and other relevant authorities before using it for official purposes.

Reno K Subramaniam
I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
