The digital signature technology can be easily integrated with the existing banking system. Banks such as HDFC Bank, Citibank, and ABM Amro Bank are taking advantage of eSignatures for saving and current accounts and electronic contract notes for equity brokerage transactions. The early adoption of digital signatures and regulations are driving the market growth of digital signature in BFSI vertical.
