IS­LAM­ABAD—The Se­cu­ri­ties and Ex­change Com­mis­sion of Pak­istan (SECP) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Na­tional In­sti­tu­tion­nel Fa­cil­i­ta­tion Tech­nolo­gies (Pvt.) Ltd (NIFT) has launched the fa­cil­ity for elec­tronic/on­line pro­cure­ment of dig­i­tal sig­na­ture cer­tifi­cates e-fil­ing at SECP.

Af­ter the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the on­line pro­cure­ment of dig­i­tal sig­na­ture cer­tifi­cates, the SECP has achieved endto-end on­line ser­vice for all pro­cesses in eSer­vices, which will go a long way in fa­cil­i­tat­ing the gen­eral pub­lic. Now the stake­hold­ers have the fa­cil­ity to sub­mit on­line re­turns/doc­u­ments 24/ 7, and are able to com­plete the whole process on­line, with­out the need to visit the SECP, NIFT or the bank.

For ef­fec­tive im­ple­men­ta­tion of the eSer­vices project as well as the se­cu­rity and au­then­tic­ity of the un­der­ly­ing trans­ac­tions, the modal­i­ties of the elec­tronic fil­ing en­vi­ron­ment have been de­vel­oped in line with the re­quire­ments of the Elec­tronic Trans­ac­tion Or­di­nance, 2002. SECP joined forces with NIFT for the pro­vi­sion of the dig­i­tal sig­na­ture cer­tifi­cates to its users. Ev­ery pro­moter, sub­scriber and other of­fi­cer of the com­pany who needs to in­ter­act with the SECP elec­tron­i­cally re­quires dig­i­tal sig­na­ture cer­tifi­cates from NIFT. Dig­i­tal sig­na­ture cer­tifi­cates from NIFT en­sure the se­cu­rity of the sys­tem.
