  • Following Sc’s Verdict Verification For Purposes Like Investment, Banking To Become Time-consuming

    The Supreme court’s decision on Aadhaar is expected to badly affect mutual funds, insurance companies, banks as well as fintech companies. Given that, the apex court disallowed private parties from obtaining the Aadhaar details of the citizens, banks, fintech companies, mutual funds houses, and insurance companies would need to revert to the old practice of physical verification.

    It needs to be mentioned that the Supreme Court on last Wednesday stated that Aadhaar was no longer needed for opening a bank account, insurance policy, and NPS account. The court added individuals would not be required to provide the 12-digit unique number for availing credit cards and landline/mobile connections, making mutual fund investments, operating mobile wallets, and collecting the pension.

    Even though the verdict strictly mentioned that Aadhaar can’t be used for the above-mentioned purposes, there are divergent views on the matter. Certain fintech companies believe that the verdict allows regulated entities to offer eKYC for individuals, who share their Aadhaar details voluntarily. The companies believe if they are not allowed to carry out online verification of Aadhaar, the cost of accessing credit may go up.
