Is your Bank account KYC compliant?


In terms of directives given by Reserve Bank of India , all customers of the Bank are required to comply with Know Your Customer (KYC) guidelines and their accounts should be KYC Compliant. Accordingly, all account holders of Bank of Maharashtra, who have yet not complied with the KYC guidelines , are hereby requested to make their accounts KYC compliant by contacting their respective branches and completing the required documentation immediately. The following documents may be furnished as proof of Identity and verification of address:

A) Latest Photograph(s) of the account holder(s)



Any of the following documents with authenticated photographs thereon:

In case of joint accounts, account holders/applicants, who are not closely related to each other, each account holder are required to establish his/her identity and address independently by submitting the above documents.

In case the requisite documents are not furnished the bank will be reluctantly compelled, in compliance with Reserve Bank of India guidelines, to freeze/close operations of KYC non-compliant account without any further notification, at the risk and responsibility and cost of the customer.
