The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has introduced the Aadhaar-based Video Customer Identification Process (V-CIP), which allows banks and other lenders to complete the KYC process of customers on video remotely. Lenders can utilize a video-based digital KYC facility as an alternative to the e-KYC facility. The central bank has revised its guidelines under the Prevention of Money-laundering (Maintenance of Records) Rules, 2005, to introduce V-CIP. The Reserve Bank of India said that the Video KYC would be consent-based, which means banks must take the consent of customers for video-based KYC. Video KYC will make it convenient for banks and other regulated entities to follow the RBI’s Know Your Customer (KYC) norms by making use of digital technology.
