eMudhra surpasses 20 Million eSigns within two years


The landmark establishes eMudhra as the first and only eSign provider to cross the milestone

Bangalore, 17th August 2017: eMudhra, a market leader in the secure digital Identity and transaction management space, announced today it has surpassed the issuance of over 20 million eSigns. The firm launched eSign services in July 2015 and has achieved this number within a short span of 2 years. The firm announced issuance of 2.5 million eSigns at the end of the year 2016.

eSign is eMudhra’s flagship service, which allows any Aadhaar holder to digitally sign a document. This is a new and innovative way to sign any document electronically without going through the hassle of signing a document physically or with a dongle based digital signature. The signature service is facilitated by authenticating the Aadhaar holder via the Aadhaar-based e-KYC (electronic Know Your Customer) service and an OTP sent to the registered mobile number so the customer does not have to be physically present for verifying identity. eSign is legally valid under the Information Technology Act of India. eMudhra issues 150,000 eSigns on an average per day and expects to achieve 50-75 million eSigns in the next 12 months.

On achieving this milestone, Mr V. Srinivasan, Founder Chairman eMudhra said, “From the start, our endeavor is to enable paperless transformation and support the Government of India’s (GOI) ‘Digital India’ vision. We have always laid the importance on customer convenience and substantial cost advantages to Customers through our eSign services. Crossing 20 million eSigns is a huge testament to our success in providing solutions that aligns with the government’s vision of a paperless and cashless economy. This is a very important milestone in our journey to be a leader in identity and transaction management.”

The Government is bullish on making India a technologically advanced nation. As a result of the efforts laid down by GoI, eSign has become a popular mechanism and improves the ease of doing business, allowing organizations to digitally transform their operations. Plenty of large organizations are now changing the way business is operated and this in turn is leading to a satisfied Customer. Entire technology architecture including software has been developed by the in-house R&D team of eMudhra in line with Government’s “Make in India” Vision.

While ERP, CRM, etc. address the flow of data, the last mile problem of document flow with signatures is perennially present which results in printing, signing, couriering, scanning, storage of documents adding to costs and turnaround times. eSign helps organizations sign the document digitally without the need for printing it. This reduces the time, money, and efforts lost in doing paperwork.

eMudhra’s eSign service has been widely adopted by several large organizations including banks, government agencies across the country.

ISquash Pune Closed Squash Championship 2017 12th August to 15th August.

ISquash Academy, established in May 2016 by Marisha Jilka, who moved from Singapore with a motive of helping Squash grow in India as there were very few quality training centres for children. In a year, the academy has over 120+ students who are training regularly in 7 centres in Pune. In addition, ISquash Academy has helped many coaches such as Ashish Sunny, Sandeep Arya and Jainendra Bhandari to get themselves certified. The academy has also organised various Camps, Leagues and Amateur Tournaments regularly for the Squash Players around the city in the past year.


The Pune Closed Squash Championship is one of the city’s longest running squash tournaments. Conducted every year for the last two decades, the championship is open to squash players that are residents of Pune. The event has consistently grown in size each year, especially so in the last few years as the squash scene in Pune has witnessed exponential growth. This year, the championship is presented by the Poona Club, and is sponsored by Pune iSquash Academy, Prince, Karia Builders, Ihealth mantra, Sahyadri Industries, Beem Pro – Soft Skill Training, the Spobble App and VR Labs, our Tech Partner.


With over 250 entries, this year’s edition will be the largest Pune Closed ever. Of special note is the fact that there is an ‘Under 9’ category, highlighting the fact that children are coming to the sport at a younger and younger age with the youngest player being of 7 years. There will also be several Masters event, including an ‘Over 55’ category with the oldest player aged 72. There are about 15 categories which will be played in this event. Lastly, a category that is growing in popularity has seen a record number of entries this year, namely, the doubles event. The cash price for the event is Rs. 50,000 along with vouchers and coupons from different sports outlets. The championship will run from August 12th to 15th at the Poona Club Squash Complex managed by Manish Mehta who is a professional Squash player and member of Poona Club also mentioned that he will be planning for Pune Squash Open very soon.


We plan to create more awareness about the sport as it is not as popular in India and have Squash Training Camps monthly and launch the Pune Squash Open next year with professional players from all over the world coming to play for the event. iSquash Academy aims to grow the sport from the ground up in Pune and give it the popularity that it deserves so that we create players who can win India Gold in PSA World Championships.
