e-KYC – A new way of Digital Account opening

e-KYC facilitates the completion of KYC process online eliminating the need for filling up physical forms and submission of physical documents. The main objective of e-KYC is to register the customer with least amount of paperwork and in the shortest possible time. The customers need to submit their details, such as – Aadhaar number, PAN, Aadhaar registered mobile number and bank details.

Difference between KYC and e-KYC

‘Know Your Client’ or KYC is a process by which a service provider, either government or private, verifies your identity and other particulars linked to you using documentation such as your Aadhaar Card. The process is similar in the case of e-KYC, here; authentication is carried out via an electronic mode. In other words, e-KYC is simply the process of carrying out verification digitally, without the need of physical documentation.

With the introduction of e-KYC, you can now furnish documentation easily. In fact, Aadhaar-based e-KYC makes authentication simple as it is as valid as a Xerox copy of your Aadhaar Card.


To take part in e-KYC verification, you must have a registered Aadhaar card and a mobile number linked to it. Every resident Indian is entitled to an Aadhaar Card. Similarly, NRIs and foreigners who have lived in India for at least 182 days in the 12 months preceding the date of enrolment for Aadhaar can also obtain a card. After having met these basic criteria, you qualify for Aadhaar and so also, the e-KYC process.

e-KYC OTP based

During Aadhaar-based e-KYC verification, an OTP is sent to you by UIDAI for authentication purposes. This is sent on your registered mobile number. To obtain it you must click ‘generate OTP’.
