KYC Norms

Updated KYC norms: what mutual funds investors need to know

Revision in KYC Norms applicable for RI/NRI/ UBOs (eg. Karta, Director, Partners) w.e.f. April 1, 2024.

Following recent SEBI regulations, KYC status is now categorized as either "KYC validated" or "KYC registered" based on verification of your details. "KYC validated" offers more flexibility and requires linking your PAN card with Aadhaar. "KYC registered" allows investment with us currently but may require further verification for future investments with other companies.

What is KYC?

KYC (Know Your Customer) is a process that helps us verify your identity and address to prevent fraud and money laundering. It's a crucial step for anyone investing in mutual funds.

What are the latest changes?

SEBI regulations now categorize KYC status as either "KYC validated" or "KYC registered" based on document verification.

Here's a breakdown:

  1. KYC validated: Offers more flexibility. Achieved by linking your pan card with aadhaar. allows investment across any Asset Management Company (AMC).
  2. KYC registered: Achieved by completing KYC with a valid Officially Valid Document (OVD) like aadhaar, pan, passport, driving license, or voter id. Allows investment in shriram mutual funds only (for now).

How to re-do KYC


Follow these five steps to re-do your KYC online:

  2. Enter your pan and enter the otp received on your registered mobile number and email address.
  3. Choose one of the listed AMCs for which you want to update the KYC details. Your KYC recorded will be updated for all the AMCs automatically.
  4. Modify the necessary information and upload relevant documents.
  5. Review the entered details and click on “Submit” to completed the KYC process.


Submit the KYC form and a physical copy of your Aadhaar card to any fund house you invest with or want to invest with.

Note: Physical KYC validation might not go through due to several reasons, a few of which are listed below along with the possible solutions—

Unreadable aadhaar qr code: Scan your aadhaar qr code and write the Aadhaar Verification Reference number on the copy submitted for KYC.

Aadhaar data mismatch: Ensure your Aadhaar data matches the issuing authority (UIDAI).

Unlinked pan-aadhaar: Link your pan card with aadhaar (unless NRI). NRIs need to declare their status on the income tax department website.

Email/Mobile validation failure: Refer to the links provided earlier to verify your email and mobile number.

KYC-aadhaar data mismatch: Double-check that your name, date of birth, gender, address, and pin code match between your KYC and aadhaar database.

On-screen confirmation not guaranteed: A successful screen confirmation doesn't guarantee KYC validation.

These are common reasons, but individual pan validation processes might encounter other challenges.

Documents required for offline KYC

Given below are a list of documents required for a smooth offline KYC validation process:

Resident individuals:

  • Duly filled KYC form
  • Passport-sized color photograph
  • Pan card copy
  • Officially Valid Document (OVD) - Preferably Aadhaar Card (downloaded masked copy recommended)

NRI individuals:

Tips for a smooth KYC experience:

  • Use aadhaar as your OVD for "validated" KYC status, avoiding re-KYC with other amcs.
  • Ensure your e-Aadhaar/m-Aadhaar or qr code is readable during KYC.
  • Link your pan with aadhaar (unless NRI).
