What is KRA?

KRA stands for Know your client registration agency
With a view to bring uniformity in the KYC requirements for the securities markets, SEBI has initiated usage of uniform KYC by all SEBI registered intermediaries.
KRA centralizes all KYC records in the securities market. On opening an account with a SEBI registered intermediary, you are required to fill out your KYC information along with supporting documents. The Intermediary on their part will upload all the material on the system of the KYC Registration Agency (KRA). This KYC information can be accessed by all SEBI Registered Intermediaries while dealing with the same client

How does KRA simplify account opening process?

Once the KYC process is completed with a SEBI registered intermediary/ broker, a trader does not have to undergo the entire process again with another intermediary
In simpler words, if the KRA- KYC is already verified, supporting documents such as PAN card & address proof are not essential; as long as the address is the same as the one registered with the original KRA- KYC. In addition, the In- person verification (IPV) is not necessary

Do commodities and currencies exchanges recognize KRA?

Yes, commodities & currencies exchanges in India recognize KRA

SEBI authorized KRA agencies

NSDL Database Management Limited (NDML) and CDSL Ventures Limited (CVL)

What is IPV and why is it necessary?

Exchange norms require intermediaries to complete In-person verification (IPV) of clients signing- up along with their original documents such as pan-card, address, income proofs and so on. For clients based in Bangalore, the IPV will be completed by our representatives stationed here

How do we implement IPV for out- station clients?

The IPV will be established via web-cam. In addition, O/S clients can submit either one of the following docs to complete address proof verification
a) Self- attested originals of utility bills
b) Self- attested photocopies of any one document mentioned under Address proof
