Investors needs to be KYC compliant for investing into Mutual Funds.
KYC or Know Your Customer is a customer identification process and is a must for investing in Mutual Fund(s). The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has laid down guidelines under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act 2002, which makes it binding for financial institutions and financial intermediaries like mutual funds to acquaint themselves with their customers. This one-time process needs to be done by submitting the duly filled KYC application along with the Identity and Address Proof at any of the Mutual Fund office(s).
Hence, investors who want to make an investment in a mutual fund scheme either through a lumpsum or a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) should complete the KYC process. KYC is mandatory irrespective of the investment amount. A one-time verification is all that is needed for transactions across all mutual funds.
Note: KYC process helps prevent money laundering and other suspicious transactions.
Proof of Identity (Any one of the below documents. PAN is Mandatory if the investment amount is > 50K)
Passport / PAN Card / Voter ID / NREGA Job Card.
Proof of Address: (Any one of the below Document)
Passport / PAN Card / Voter ID / NREGA Job Card./ Aadhar Card
