Visit by Hon'ble Officials from Financial Markets of Pakistan to NSDL in December 2011
SEBI vide Circular No. MIRSD/Cir-23/2011 dated December 2, 2011 has informed that at present, if a client intends to open accounts with different intermediaries for the purpose of trading / investment in the securities market, he has to undergo the process of Know Your Client (KYC) again and again. Therefore, to avoid duplication of KYC process with every intermediary, a mechanism for centralization of the KYC records in the securities market has been developed. As a result, once the client has done KYC with a SEBI registered intermediary, the client need not undergo the same process again with another intermediary.
