Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements under Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002
Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (PMLA) came into effect from July 1, 2005 and consequently SEBI mandated that all intermediaries (which includes Mutual Funds) should formulate and implement a proper policy framework as per the guidelines on anti money laundering measures and also adopt a Know Your Customer (KYC) Policy. At present each investor (including joint Unit holders) who wishes to invest an amount of Rs. 50,000 or more need to be KYC compliant as required by law.

KYC is one time exercise while dealing in securities markets - once KYC is done through a SEBI registered intermediary (broker, DP, Mutual Fund etc), you need not undergo the same process again when you approach another intermediary.
