New Delhi, May: Private sector IDBI Bank has launched a video-based Customer Identification Process (V-CIP) to update KYC (Know Your Customer) for its customers amid the Cowid crisis. The bank said in a statement. The move comes after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Wednesday announced the rationalization of KYC for several categories of customers after seeing an outbreak of the corona virus.
Under this, the RBI has decided to expand the scope of video KYC or V-CIP, such as client-owned companies, authorized signatories and beneficial owners of legal entities in new departments. IDBI Bank said in a statement issued on Wednesday that customers can now update their KYC through V-CIP (Video Based Customer Identification Process) without visiting the branch.
