1. What is CKYC?

Central KYC Registry (CKYCR) is a centralized repository of KYC records of customers in the financial sector with uniform KYC norms. Government of India has authorized the Central Registry of Securitization and Asset Reconstruction and Security interest of India (CERSAI), set up under subsection (1) of Section 20 of Securitization and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act, 2002, to act as, and to perform the functions of, the Central KYC Records (CKYC) Registry under the PML Rules 2005, including receiving, storing, safeguarding and retrieving the KYC records in digital form of a “client”, as defined in clause (ha) sub-section (1) of Section 2 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002. As per the new KYC norms, once the customer completes the KYC process with an entity authorized to conduct KYC, the customer will be able to invest in all the

There will be slight change in the KYC form, which encompasses KYC with KRA as well as CKYC.

W.e.f. 1st February 2017, investors will be categorized as below for adhering to CKYC norms:

    (i) Such investors should submit the new CKYC form along with the investment application form. (ii) If such investor has filled the KRA form, then Supplementary CKYC form has to be additionally enclosed.
  • b) Existing investors (i.e. Investors who are KYC compliant (through KRA):
    There are no new / additional requirements for existing investors. They can continue investing.
  • c) CKYC compliant Investors (i.e. who have completed their CKYC formalities and obtained a KIN through an intermediary):
