KYC Documents: Everything You Need to Know

Unless you want your bank to shut down or close your account, you NEED to submit your Know Your Customer -KYC documents. Here is a brief introduction to what KYC is and why you need to update these documents with your bank.

What is KYC:

Know Your Customer (KYC) is a mandatory RBI process that was incorporated by the banks to prevent any kind of financial fraud. This helps banks get to know their customers better and help manage risks and protect them from financial crimes like money laundering, identity theft and terrorist financing.

What are KYC Documents:

KYC documents are used to verify an individual or company’s financial authenticity. If you are an Individual, you would need to submit:

  1. An ID proof
  2. An Address proof

Your respective bank has a list of documents for each of the above. You can submit any one of the following documents for ID proof:

For Address proof:

  • Utility bills: Electricity/LPG bill
  • Bank Statement
  • Ration Card
  • Employer letter (accepted by bank)

If You are a Merchant:

You would need to submit documents as per the type of company you are along with your individual KYC documents. You can take a look at the list of documents according to company type, here.

  6. Hey Sarah,

    1. Yes. you will need to submit documents for individuals to your bank. You can just walk in to your bank and they’ll help you out. Axis Bank has e-KYC, which means you can update your KYC online but it’s a slighly more technical process.

    2. While signing up and updating your KYC, make sure your PAN number and Name and account number of the bank statement are all valid. We just want to make sure your money is safe and no one is trying to make money at your expense. Our support/compliance team will get in touch with you for everything else.
