In case of transaction rejection due to a KYC-related error, you will have to either undergo re-KYC or validate your phone and email based on your current KYC status.

KYC Registartion Agency(KRA) is an agency registered with Securities and Exchange Board of India. The KRA will maintain KYC records of the investors centrally, on behalf of capital market intermediaries registered with SEBI

Under Process

This status shows up if the KYC is recently updated and under processing at KRAs. 

If your KYC status is ‘Under Process’ within 15 days, then you can transact. If it is beyond 15 days, then you will have to do a re-KYC for transacting.


You will have to do the re-KYC using an officially valid document (preferably Adhaar). In case you are not doing your KYC using your Adhaar, these are the following documents that you can use : 

  • Driving license 

  • Passport

  • Voter's Identity Card issued by the Election Commission of India

  • Job card issued by NREGA duly signed by an officer of the State Government.

  • Letter issued by the National Population Register containing details of name and address

  • Any other document as notified by the Central Government in consultation with the Regulator


NRIs corner:

  • Due to issues with passport validation, and UIDAI's facilitation of Aadhaar for NRIs, the requirement for portability of KYC records will be relaxed for one year until April 30, 2025.
  • To make transactions in the securities market easier, validation of either the mobile number or email address will be required for NRIs to transact.
  • NRIs, whose KYC details cannot be verified by KRAs, will be allowed to sell or redeem their investments, subject to adequate due diligence by intermediaries. The client's email address will be considered optional.
