Hi Daniel ,
Thanks for your quick response.
Adding one point here user needs to login the Claim portal for
accessing this Online claim Form .

Just for clarity - Here, You mean - availability of an accessible
Keyboard input options such as typing the "User's - Name
/ID/Password etc. " , can be considered as an alternative option
for the Mouse oriented Signature mechanism?
If this Online Form is downloadable after successful submission ,
providing the "Name /ID/Password , in the place of Mouse
oriented Sign is acceptable?
Kindly help me .
Thanks in advance,
Ajeesh Thomas
