Update your KYC( CVL KRA/CAMS KRA ) online

CVL/CAMS KRA is handling the KYC compliance for most of the mutual funds.

In case of address change, the first thing to do is to update the KYC since all mutual funds will use the address present in our KYC document. Due to this , we need to always keep our KYC up-to-date. 

CVL/CAMS KRA do not offer facility to update  KYC online. We need to send a physical signed copy of KYC update form along with proofs to AMC’s or  karvy/CAMS office.

But luckily from now,we can update our CVL/CAMS KRA KYC online using the eKYC feature offered by Quantum Mutual Fund .

We need to have a web cam for this process.(one can try in mobile/tablet but not sure whether it will work properly)

Best part is we  don't need to be an investor in Quantum Mutual fund to avail this facility Smile

Keep the below documents ready before you initiate the eKYC updating :
a) Aadhaar card scan copy (Any other accepted Address proof will be okay but Aadhaar will quicken the process)
b) PAN card scan copy.
c) Blank sheet of paper with your signature in it since it will ask for signature capture for confirmation.

Optional : Groom yourself and be in nice attire since your photo,video will be captured for authentication Smile with tongue out
