Banking channels could be utilised, intentionally or unintentionally, by criminal elements for channelizing funds for unscrupulous activities. In order to ensure that adequate controls are in place, regulated entities (REs) have been mandated by the RBI to carry out ‘Money Laundering (ML) and Terrorist Financing (TF) Risk Assessment’ exercise periodically. Besides preparing / updating risk profile of each customer and applying enhanced due diligence measures on higher risk customers; REs are required to identify and assess their ML / TF risk for customers, countries and geographical areas as also for their products / services / transactions / delivery channels enabling them to take appropriate effective measures.

Since the potential weakness in the KYC framework may act as a gateway for many financial crimes, including money laundering and terrorist financing, it is of paramount importance that the REs have a robust, efficient and sound operating KYC framework strictly in compliance with extant regulatory prescriptions. It would also entail that the KYC framework of an entity be comprehensive, taking cognisance of various operational and sector-specific vulnerabilities and aptly addressing the risks arising out of a weaker or an inadequately KYC compliant institution.


As the Board of Directors of regulated entities are responsible for the effectiveness of KYC program by ensuring that appropriate procedures are established and implemented effectively, this virtual program seeks to provide an overview and an enhanced understanding of the KYC framework including measures to address the various risks associated with KYC non-compliance.  This program also aims to provide updates on changes in the KYC and AML regulations including the requisite management oversight, systems and controls, segregation of duties, training and other related matters.

  • KYC and AML Measures - Regulatory perspective and recent developments
