CKYC, also known as Central Know Your Customer, serves as a centralized repository for KYC data utilized by clients within the financial services sector. Its primary objective is to streamline verification processes, bolster security measures, minimize documentation, and elevate the overall customer journey.
A CKYC software solution is a digital tool that assists financial institutions (FIs) in efficiently retrieving their customers' KYC information through API integration. This CKYC API solution enables seamless integration with CERSAI, enabling FIs to perform tasks such as uploading, searching, downloading, and updating CKYC records. By streamlining the KYC process, it enhances the speed and efficiency of customer onboarding.
Entities operating in the financial sector and holding registrations with regulatory authorities such as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI), and Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) are allowed to register their customers in the CKYC platform.
As of March 2023, the CKYC Record Registry holds over 70 Crore CKYC records.
a) Bulk upload using portal accepts max 25 MB (maximum size of single individual record should be 350 kb, maximum size of single entity record should be 5 MB) b) Bulk SFTP over Internet - No Limit c) Bulk SFTP over leased lines - No Limit
a) Through bulk upload - Manually b) Through bulk upload - SFTP
The response will occur in three phases: a) After performing the SFTP upload, you will receive the initial response, 'response_0', in the 'SFTP response' folder. This response will be generated immediately and will solely verify the validity of the data format. b) At the Checker level, the same response will be received for authorization purposes. Once it is approved, a subsequent response called 'response_1' will be generated. c) In 'response_1', you will receive an 11-digit reference number that can be used to track the status of the upload. The final response, indicating either rejection or approval, will be generated within 24 hours.
A response will be generated. The response will contain the reference number of the failed (rejected) records along with the reasons for the rejection.
Potential reasons for rejection include: a) incorrect or invalid identification information, b) missing required information, c) absence of an image file, d) document mapping inconsistencies, and e) invalid data formatting.
No, according to the rules, without the permission of the financial institution (FI), the data cannot be stored. Only if the FI grants permission, requests it, or allows it, the data can be stored in an encrypted format.
1. For 100 records of individual type, maximum size of ZIP file must be 35 MB. 2. For 100 records of entity type, maximum size of ZIP file must be 500 MB
To track the usage of the Search & Download functionalities, the financial institution assigns a unique reference ID to each request. By analyzing these reference IDs, along with the type of request and its status, we can accurately determine the number of hits. The system maintains a unique identifier for each hit, ensuring accurate tracking of usage.
