In this way, state services will be digitized and regulating the citizens and legal entities will not be required to obtain or exchange information from the public information system so they can get state services in a time-efficient and cost-effective, as well as reduce the cost of budget for paperwork, postage, etc by exchanging information between government agencies electronically means significant in many ways to reduce costs. 

With the implementation of the “Law on Protection of Personal Data”, and strengthened the right to freedom and inviolability of a person established by the Constitution by adding protection of information such as biometrics, genetics, and digital signatures. Personal data is collected, processed and used only with the consent of the owner of the data, except for those specified by law.

Therefore, with the implementation of the "Law on Digital Signature", the certificate of digital signature will be issued for free of charge to about 2,300,000 citizens of Mongolia who are above the age of 16. Also, foreign citizens and stateless persons can obtain and use digital signatures during their stay in Mongolia. It is important to avoid paper-based works to improve the conditions for information transition and exchange between citizens, legal entities and government authorities by using digital signatures and to increase the number of electronic forms of contracts.
