The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP), in its pursuit of end-to-end digitization of regulatory processes, has achieved another milestone with the launch of an online facility for the issuance of digitally certified true copies of statutory returns and mortgage register.
The new initiative is in line with the government’s vision of a ‘Digital Pakistan’ to create an enabling business-friendly environment and to improve user experience through the use of technology. The issuance of digitally certified copies will replace the decades-old practice of manually obtaining certified true copies of a company’s statutory returns on paper.
The application for digital certified copies and mortgage register can easily be made online through the SECP’s eService portal. After the submission of an online application and the verification of the payment, the applicant will instantly receive certified copies of their desired company on their registered email address.
The copies can be verified by scanning the QR code or by clicking the link on each document.
