How to check CKYC or Central KYC status online?

Central KYC or CKYC was replaced the old KYC process. It’s centralized process avoids you to submit multiple KYC while opening savings bank accounts, buying life insurance or investing in mutual fund products into one time centralized process. How to check CKYC or Central KYC Status online?

As I pointed above, now this new Central KYC or CKYC replaced the old KYC process. This reduced the multiple submission of KYC at different stages of financial transactions.

What is CKYC or Central KYC?

It is a single and centralized KYC process for all your financial transactions. In the old format of KYC, PAN was the sole identifier for an investor. However, in new Central KYC Registry system, the list goes beyond Aadhaar and PAN. It removes the submission of KYC at different level or to different financial institutions of your financial transactions.

It is also the single form to create new KYC or modify the existing KYC. Three types of accounts are specified. One is Normal, second is Simplified or for low-risk customers and third is Small investors. You have to select which is applicable to you.

If your aggregate of all credits in a financial year does not exceed rupees one lakh, the aggregate of all withdrawals and transfers in a month does not exceed rupees ten thousand or the balance at any point of time does not exceed rupees fifty thousand, then you will be considered as SMALL account type of investor.

The simplified or low-risk customers means customers who are not able to submit anyone among 6 documents listed. They are Passport, driving license, PAN card, Voter ID, job card issued by NREGA or Aadhaar Card.

This CKYC or Central KYC also includes the FATCA declaration. Hence, it avoids you declare the same at the different level of your investments.

The format of CKYC or Central KYC will be as below.

Central KYC Registry or CKYCR Form

How to fill the CKYC or Central KYC form?

I have created a short video on how to fill this form. This is simple and easy to understand. Watch this video before filling the CKYC or Central KYC form.

How to check CKYC or Central KYC status online?

As of now, there was no link to check CKYC or Central KYC status online. Hence, many found it hard to check the status online. However, recently Karvy started the facility to check CKYC or Central KYC status online.

This I think a big relief to many. I know that even though you submitted the CKYC or Central KYC application, in some cases the status may not show this. I think they are still at data compilation mode. But still, I feel it’s the big relief to many.

Visit the Karvy website link to check CKYC or Central KYC status online.

The screen looks like below.

Once you enter PAN number and the characters appear below and click on the tab “Search Now”, you will see the below screen where it shows the status.

Status of CKYC or Central KYC

You notice that you will also get your CKYC ID, which is very much important to quote for future references like modify or update your KYC data.

As I pointed, as of now Karvy started this facility. I will update this post whenever others also follow the same.

Do note that if your KYC was registered in the old system of KYC, then the status will not reflect CKYC ID, instead, it shows the old KYC data.

    Earlier I registered KYC using Adhaar (it has limit on investment amount). Later, I submitted the docs to register for CKYC. When I check the Karvykra, it shows, MOdify status as “KYC registered” and date of modification as well. But, I did not get CKYC id. CKYC Apln. Status : CKYC RESPONSE RECEIVED. I did this activity thru groww. could you please tell me How to make sure that it is done?

  3. Dear sir, 1 and half years ago I opened savings bank account in Karur Vysya Bank, yesterday I received kyc identifier number from cersai through email. I didn’t apply for ckyc but bank uploaded my details to CeRSai. In ckyc document, my photo, kyc id number, my name, dob, phone number, email id, ID proof: UID, and my address are present in that document… With these details can I open bank account, mutual funds, insurance in other institutions? I mean just providing my ckyc number.

  30. How to know my ckyc number?

    Reply
  31. Hi Mr Basavaraj
    I am an NRI working in Saudi Arabia. I recently started investing in mutual funds, for which I did ekyc by cams. But I put my tax status as resident individual instead of NRI(because the kyc process for NRI seems very complicated), but for the transactions I am using my NRO account. Later I came to know that it’s mandatory to declare my NRI status. So far I didn’t face any problem with the transactions from my NRO Account, but As I have declared myself as a resident during ekyc in cams all my folios also show status as individual, and also whenever I try to create a new folio in cams I don’t get the option to select tax status as NRI.
    So what should I do now. Should I continue investing as resident individual? What can be the consequences if I continue as a resident?

    Also recently I opened an NRE Account with yes bank , so they also did my CKYC for the account opening and I also received my CKYC identification number from CERSAI by email. But that also doesn’t show up in karvy website.
    But the mail I got from CERSAI has both my indian as well as overseas address mentioned in it, which means my CKYC might have been updated as NRI.
    So will my eKYC be now overridden by my CKYC data and I can invest as an NRI?

  54. Hi
    Today I received a message saying that your kyc details have been registered with central kyc registry and ckyc id is provided to me. but I never applied for it. I checked with the above link and for my and my families’ pan card number, it’s not showing any ckyc id. So the message I received was a glitch? If not then., How to check the ckyc status using ckyc id?

    Reply
    • Deepika-It may be some mistake. Someone might have provided your contact details. If you want to check your KYC details, then refer the same. If your PAN is not reflecting, then just ignore.

  55. Hi Basu,

    I am an NRI and recently registered my KYC through SBICAP securities.
    I got email from NDML mentioning about the successful registration of KYC.

    However in form I see my status as “RESIDENT INDIVIDUAL”. Is this status correct for NRI?

    Reply
    • Neeraj-It is showing wrong status. You check with SBI. Because the status must be NRI.

  56. Hello,

    I have given my cellnumber and email id for my mother’s CKYC. Can I use the same mobile and email id for my CKYC?

    Also, I have recvd my mom’s ckyc number via sms on my cellphone but when I checked on Karvy website, CKYC Appln date//Ack no.//Apln status and CKYC ID coloumns are blank but Status Description says KYC registered under CAMS. So,Is ckyc done for her??

    Reply
    • Dhruti-Yes, you can use your email and contact number for you and your mother’s KYC. In my view, your KYC is completed.

      Reply
      • Thank You Basu. Also, should the address mentioned on CKYC be word-to-word as that mentioned on aadhar or passport? In my mom’s case,overall address is correct, except that the landmark is mentioned differently.

                if Ckyc has been done in June2017 for first holder and Normal KYC for 2nd/joint holder,while investing in MF’s.,do we need to go thru aadhar link procedure again?
                Also, is Aadhar link compulsory for first and second/joint holder?

                Reply
              • Dhruti-If Aadhaar was not given while doing KYC earlier, then you have to link it again. All first, second or joint holders of Mutual Fund Investors have to link their Aadhaar to Mutual Funds.

          • I have a similar situation for my spouse, where she has a KYC record in NDML. No issues while investing in MFs.

            Currently have submitted the CKYC forms twice with HDFC Mutual Fund to get CKYC record created. However, on both occasions my KYC with NDML is getting updated and CKYC record is not being created.

            When we approach HDFC with this issue, they are saying that its not something which they control and their responsibility is only to send to the KRA like NDML / Karvy / CAMS etc., and not to CKYC.

            How do an existing investor already having a KYC record with any of the KRA register for CKYC?

            Note:
            1) For MF investments, KYC with any of the KRA is mandatory as of now. CKYC is not being referred to
            2) New investors investing in MFs -> when they submit CKYC forms, then both KYC with anyone of the KRA and CKYC are being done (my case falls into this scenario, however I’m not able to view the CKYC details on the Karvy website link though. Not sure why, but I do have a CKYC identifier sent to my email almost 6 months back).

    While doing fresh mutual fund investment I found that my name is incorrectly spelled on that mutual fund website.

    Can you please help me, to whom shall I connect to get this corrected? The new MF customer care team says we can’t update the data, PAN card team says you need to fill up PAN card details change form. Now I am confused as exact point of contact is uncertain or unknown to me.

  79. Hi,
    This is Subhasis from WB. I started investing in SBIMF being eKYC compliant. Later, I applied for CKYC through CAMS only, have also been alloted the 14 digit Central KYC Registry No. But I am not able to see any data regarding my CKYC either in CAMSKRA or in CVLKRA site. Presently, my every online transaction in SBIMF gets rejected citing the reason that I am only eKYC compliant, not normal KYC which limits my investment to Rs.50000 in any specific fund in a year. I argued them with my CKYC no. but seems they are not aware about this. Strange! what should I do in this situation? Suggest, Please

I checked my CKYC status on the Karvy website in the link provided in the article, but it merely shows my PAN No and name. But, it does mention that my KYC data was uploaded in 2009 and updated in 2016, but doesn’t show any other information about what data now exists in their Database. How do I get my CKYC done, as no FI I have been associated with has ever asked me to submit the Form for the same.

Hence, was wondering if the incorrect PAN details (as with CIBIL) would be carried into my CKYC too, which is wrong. Hence, wanted to know how I can get CKYC done voluntarily. Thank you.
