CDSL is pleased to inform, that it has enroled as KYC Service Agency (KSA)/Authentication Service Agency (ASA) with UIDAI to facilitate eKYC of investors. Today, customers provide physical documents as verification of their Proof of Identity (PoI) and Proof of Address (PoA) which are key requirements for access to financial products. The Aadhaar eKYC service of UIDAI provides an instant, electronic, nonrepudiable proof of identity and proof of address along with date of birth and gender. In addition, it also provides the resident’s mobile number and email address to the service provider, which helps further streamline the process of service delivery. The resident servicing agency is called the KYC User Agency (KUA)/ Authentication User Agency (AUA). The KUA accesses the eKYC service through a registered KSA/ASA.
