KYC (Know Your Customer) Information For Customers Intending To Open Bank Accounts With Us

The objective of obtaining KYC information is to enable the Bank to have positive identification of its customers. This is also in the interest of customers to safeguard their hard earned money.

The KYC guidelines mandate banks to collect from their customers.

  • Proof of identity
  • Proof of address

Our KYC procedure specifies certain commonly available documents as proof of personal identification and address proof, so as to not cause inconvenience to those intending to open bank accounts in our Bank.

Our Branch officials at the Account Opening Desk will be able to provide guidance regarding the different types of documents acceptable for opening any account.

We request your kind co-operation in providing the required documents for opening new accounts to enable us to adhere to the KYC policy.
