5 Easy Steps To Become KYC Compliant
May 20, 2017

Author: PersonalFN Content & Research Team

Know Your Customer (KYC) is a prerequisite for investing in mutual funds (and almost all financial instruments). It is vital compliance on the part of financial product manufacturers, to know their investor better.

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) under The Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 ("PMLA") requires Mutual Fund Houses to comply with (KYC) norms, irrespective of the investment amount.

However, the investors’ pace to this compliance has been slow, as not all investors have completed their KYC norms. Investors find complying with KYC burdensome and a rather complex process, involving a good amount of paperwork. And to a certain extent, this is true.

To resolve this, the Government has appointed the Central Registry of Securitisation Asset Reconstruction and Security Interest of India (CERSAI) to establish a central KYC registry, which simplifies the process of complying to KYC procedures -- and you need to do it just once; either with a bank, mutual fund, or an insurance company that you’ve invested in. This means, investors/account holders don't have to fill-up the KYC form every time with other financial product manufacturers/providers.

Have you complied with KYC norms?

No? Well, here’s how you can get started…

  1. Well, you can fetch you CKYC form here
  2. Recent passport size photograph
  3. Proof of Identity
  4. PAN Card Copy
  5. Proof of Address
This is physically done once, of course, and you need to submit the form to your broker or investment adviser with your documents.

Secondly, there is an In-Person Verified (IPV) procedure that you need to do. To do this, there’s the options of either visiting the point of sales office or fixing up an online or video meeting.

But this process can prove to be time consuming and lengthy. To add on to the frustration, a lot of times these online meetings could get cancelled if either the customer service executive or the investor is unavailable.
However, there’s a solution…

Quantum Mutual Fund has introduced E-IPV. Their E-CKYC process is completely paperless and online.

Allow us to take you through it. To comply with the KYC process in a hassle-free way all you need is:

✔Internet Connection
✔Working Web Camera

✔Signature on a plain paper

And follow the 5 easy steps to become compliant in just two weeks.

Step 1:

Step 3:

Now you need to upload self-attested scanned copies of your pan card and address proof. And for the signature, you need to sign on a plain paper piece of paper and place it in front of the camera and capture it.

Please note that, SEBI permits investments upto Rs 50,000 for each financial year per mutual fund for Aadhaar based e-KYC using OTP verification. Once the 50,000 limit is crossed, it requires you to undergo the in-person verification procedure.

Step 4:

Next is your In Person Verification (IPV). Unlike the physical verification, here your live video is recorded through your device camera.

Hence, there is no need for you to physically visit to prove that you are alive. Everything is possible and at your convenience 24x7.
