Central Know Your Customer Registry (CKYC) is a central repository of KYC documents for customers who use different services in the financial sector. All customers of financial products can access the same KYC platform.
Once the norms have been completed centrally, all financial institutions, such as Banks Mutual Fund Company, can access them. Customers no longer need to complete KYC for every financial institution individually.
CKYC is an administrative tool that works just like the FD Interest Calculator.
