About Us CSR policy Annual Returns My KYC Status

Harmonization of KYC across the SEBI regulated intermediaries is a path breaking initiative of SEBI. It is aimed to eliminate duplication of KYC efforts which a customer has to undergo while dealing with multiple intermediaries like Mutual Funds, PMS, Alternative Investment Funds, Brokers, Depository Participants, etc.

The KYC registration Agency (KRA) maintains KYC records of the investors centrally, on behalf of capital market intermediaries registered with SEBI, eliminating the need to repeat KYC.

Hitherto, investors had to complete a KYC process as and when they interact / open an account with any SEBI Registered Intermediary like a DP, Mutual Fund, broker etc. and submit the relevant KYC documents, requirements of which may vary from intermediary to intermediary. This lead to duplication of effort. With a view to eliminate such duplication of the KYC process for investors and to have a uniform KYC process across SEBI registered intermediaries, SEBI has introduced the concept of KYC Registration Agency [KRA]. This will enable an investor to invest/trade through various intermediaries, after undergoing the KYC process only once through any intermediary. Additionally, any subsequent changes in investor static / demographic information of an investor across various SEBI registered intermediaries can be made by giving a single request to the KRA through one of the registered intermediaries.
