One reply on this article “What is KYC ?”

  1. Dear Jignesh, Here are the answers –

    1. KYC – stands for Know Your Customers

    2. Govt. has started it to track the source of funds & to prevent money laundering (stopping the entry of illegal or black money or even terrorist funds into the main stream system & earning return from this).

    3. Yes on the basis of KYC, there are checks & fraus can be minimized.

    4. If you meant for MFs & Share investment, yes CVL is the only agency.

    5. In case of Banking relationship, the KYC is done & maintained by bank itself. For Insurnce, by the insurer. For MFs & Stocks, by CVL.

    Thanks
