Punjab National Bank (PNB) has reminded its customers to update their Know Your Customer (KYC) details by August 31 in order to keep their account active. Only those PNB customers need to update their KYC whose accounts have become due for the process from March 31, 2022. The bank warned customers that “failure to update may lead for restriction of operations in your account.”

“Important announcement regarding #KYC, please note!,” tweeted the public sector lender.

“As per RBI guidelines, updating KYC for all customers is mandatory. If your account became due for KYC update from 31.03.2022, you are requested to contact your base branch to get the KYC updated before 31.08.2022,” read the notification sent by PNB on Twitter.

How PNB customers can do their KYC

When asked by a customer how to know if KYC was pending, the bank promptly replied, “Dear customer, thank you for writing to us. We request you to please contact our customer care service on 1800 180 2222/ 1800 103 2222 (free of charge)/ 0120-2490000 (number by street) for more information in this regard. Thank you.”

Customers have to submit a prescribed format duly filled and signed if there is no change in the KYC information provided by them to the bank. In case of any change, the customer must visit the branch to update the same.

What is KYC?

KYC means Know Your Customer. The KYC process helps the bank to know about the identity, address, and financial history of the customer and to keep track of the money made or not for illegal purposes.
