Important Update for Mutual Fund Investors: Ensure PAN Details Match KYC Information

May 8, 2024 . FundsIndia Desk

Recent regulatory changes require stricter alignment between investor KYC (Know Your Customer) details and mutual fund folio information. While there is no immediate disruption to existing investments, a mismatch between your PAN card (Permanent Account Number) and mutual fund folio details could impact future transactions.

Here’s a breakdown of the key points:

  • Existing Investments: Rest assured, your current mutual fund investments will not be affected by a name or date of birth (DoB) mismatch between your PAN and folio.
  • Investing in New Fund Houses: If you plan to invest with a new mutual fund company, a mismatch in KYC details might prevent your transactions from being processed. To rectify this, you will need to update your KYC information including your Name, DoB, etc., with your existing Asset Management Companies (AMCs).
