Dear Sir,

Know Your Customer (KYC) Guidelines – Accounts of Proprietary Concerns

Please refer to our circulars RPCD.CO.RRB AML.No.67/ 03.05.33(E)/2009-10 dated April 9, 2010; RPCD. CO. RF. AML. BC. No. 83/07.40.00/ 2009-10 dated May 12, 2010 and RPCD. CO. RRB. AML. BC.

2. On a review, it has been decided to include the following documents in the indicative list of required documents for opening accounts of proprietary concern:

  1. The complete Income Tax return (not just the acknowledgement) in the name of the sole proprietor where the firm™s income is reflected, duly authenticated/acknowledged by the Income Tax Authorities.
  2. Utility bills such as electricity, water, and landline telephone bills in the name of the proprietary concern.

Yours faithfully,

(C.D.Srinivasan)
