SEBI Mandates KRAs to Update KYC Information on Central KYC Records Registry
  • Effective Date: The new guidelines will come into effect starting August 1, 2024.
  • Previous Responsibility: Previously, the responsibility of uploading KYC details onto CKYCRR fell on market intermediaries such as stock brokers and alternative investment funds.
  • New Guidelines: According to the new guidelines, KRAs will have to upload verified or validated KYC information onto CKYCRR within seven days of receiving it from intermediaries.
  • Existing Records: KRAs will ensure that existing KYC records of legal entities and of individual clients are uploaded on to CKYCRR within a period of 6 months from August 1.
