The central bank said considering CKYCR is now fully-operational for individual customers, it has been decided to extend CKYCR to LEs. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Friday(18 December 2020) extended the applicability of the centralized know your customer (KYC) registry to legal entities, from individual accounts, effective 1 April 2021. Banks, non-banks, and other entities regulated by RBI have been uploading the KYC data about all individual accounts opened on or after 1 January 2017 to the centralized KYC registry (CKYCR).

The boom in technology hasn’t touched some areas of Fin-tech organizations. One of the clear-cut examples is the manual work done in the banking sector for the classification, extraction, and segregation of documents in the C-KYC process. Banking sectors are not able to fulfill the rules of RBI regarding digital documents. As long as now, the bank collects copies of our documents and identity proofs like Aadhaar card, pan card, driving license for the documentation process. They also perform numerous other essential services for their customers which further require different kinds of documents. Without any classification and segregation, the bank maintains and stores scanned copies of such documents that are saved as images. This is the usual practice till the RBI directs the banks to have a systematic document collection. As per the directions from RBI they now need to classify, extract, and segregate the documents for its C-KYC process for further usage and record-keeping purposes. Regulated entities shall upload the KYC data about accounts of LEs opened on or after 1 April 2021, on to CKYCR in terms of Rule 9 (1A) of the PML Rules," it said.

Regulated entities shall also ensure in case of accounts of LEs opened before 1 April, the KYC records are uploaded to CKYCR during periodic updation as specified in Section 38 of the master direction, or earlier when the updated KYC information is obtained from the customer. “To ensure all existing records are uploaded on to CKYCR, regulated entities shall upload the KYC data about accounts of individuals opened before 1 January 2017, at the time of updation," it added.
