Customer Identification Program

The Customer Identification Program (CIP) is a crucial process for financial institutions. It helps in the verification of the customer's identity.

The CIP process has three different methods: online, offline, or using the Unique ID of the country.

The online method involves the use of electronic means to verify the customer's identity, while the offline method involves verifying the customer's identity through physical documents.

In India, the Unique ID used for the completion of the process is Aadhar, which is a 12-digit unique identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).

Aadhar is one of the most important and widely used identification documents in India. It contains biometric and demographic data of an individual and is linked to various government schemes and services.

The use of Aadhar has simplified the identification process in the CIP process and reduced the time and effort required to complete the verification process. Aadhar has also helped reduce instances of identity theft and fraud as biometric data stored in Aadhar is difficult to forge or duplicate. Furthermore, the CKYCE program covers many more topics in the E-learning Module as well.

Who Should Do CKYCE?

Though there is no restriction on who should do this course, it is most beneficial for entry-level professionals working for

  • Banking Companies
  • Non-Banking Finance Companies
  • Co-operative Banks
  • Captive Units of MNC Banks
  • Fintech Companies
  • Payment Gateways
  • Wallet Companies

Undertaking KYC CDD training also prepares compliance teams to meet increasing regulatory expectations. It helps them to establish a fundamental baseline of knowledge in the AML KYC Domain. We designed this program for entry-level professionals only.

KYC Documents

An independent and reliable source of documents, data, or information performs KYC checks. Every client also provides documents to prove identity and address. Additionally, ID card verification, face verification, document verification, and biometric verification are some of the KYC Requirements.

In May 2018, the U.S. Financial Crimes Enforcement Network further added a new requirement for banks to identify beneficial owners. Hence, every corporate entity provides information about the real persons who run the business.

eKYC also refers to the capture of information from IDs. eKYC covers the extraction of digital data from government-issued smart IDs such as Aadhar or Driving Licenses with a physical presence, or the use of certified digital identities and facial recognition for online identity verification.

Tatvita Analytics, an Indian Analytical portal, states that CKYCE is one of the top certification courses. Additionally, it asserts that CKYCE is one of the few online certificate courses in India. This professional certificate program facilitates entry-level professionals to enter the AML Domain.

However, this program is different from Indiaforensic's anti-money laundering certification - "CAME". Money Laundering is a broader term that encompasses the KYC process. Experienced financial crime professionals and those dealing with transaction monitoring, anti-money laundering compliances, or AML Investigations should consider the Certified Anti-Money Laundering Expert program.
