Failure of an installment will not result in any charges or penalties from Sharekhan or your AMC's (Asset Management Company) side.

SIPs ensure that you invest every month, thereby instilling discipline in your investment behavior. This investment tool allows you to start investing in mutual funds with even as low as Rs. 1,000 per month; thereby helping you to build a large investment portfolio gradually. By ensuring that you invest regularly, SIPs average out your costs over the long term without worrying about timing the markets. SIPs are the best way to build wealth over the long term.

A bank mandate is an authorization given to Sharekhan to debit your bank account for monthly investments, as well as other payments. The mandate is sent by Sharekhan to your bank for registration on your behalf. Once your mandate is registered with your bank, the bank will allow Sharekhan to withdraw the amount of your investments automatically every month. You will only need to authorize us at the time of setting up your SIP.

An ACH bank mandate allows us to debit the amount towards your SIP installments from your bank account. With this mandate in place, you don't have to worry about making manual payments every month towards your investments.

A standing instruction is given to your bank to execute the transfer of funds for a specified value to a specific account, on the same date of every month.

You can execute your Systematic Investment Plan(SIP) with ease and leave all the tedious fund transfers to us.

The facility of setting up standing instruction online is currently offered by ICICI Bank, Citibank, HDFC Bank and State Bank of India.

According to the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), the Permanent Account Number (PAN) has been made the sole identification number for all participants investing in the securities market / mutual funds, irrespective of the amount of investment.

This is part of the revised know-your-customer (KYC) compliance norms currently in existence with fund houses, in order to comply with money laundering prevention rules. Association of Mutual Funds of India (AMFI) has asked mutual fund houses to comply with new KYC norms and collect PAN, address proof and photograph of all their new and existing investors with effect from January 1, 2011. The AMFI decision follows a direction from market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India ( SEBI) earlier the same year to tighten KYC norms to check fraudulent practices.

Though you may have to do some additional paperwork now, the documentation would be centralized across all the fund houses with the help of PAN and this will benefit you in the long run.

Hence, Sharekhan collects your PAN card to link it to your investments and also to verify your KYC (Know your Customer) information with CDSL.

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has made it mandatory for all online investors to be KYC-registered (Know Your Client). Hence, at Sharekhan, we necessarily require our customers to be KYC compliant.

We have launched a new method of KYC registration called ‘Aadhaar-based eKYC system' to make this step quick and paperless. All you have to do is enter your PAN and Aadhaar number and your eKYC will be complete. Once this is done, you will become eligible to invest in a selected number of schemes, and have access to the full range of services on Sharekhan.

To get access to all the mutual fund schemes in the Sharekhan universe, you'll have to download, sign and send your KYC registration form (available in the ‘My forms” section of your account), along with a few supporting documents. We'll get you KYC-registered on your behalf.

A cancelled cheque leaf means an original cheque leaf with ‘cancelled' written across it. As an online investment service, we have to make sure that the bank account with which you've registered with us is in your name. To do this, we require a cancelled cheque leaf with your name pre-printed on it.

If your name does not appear on the cheque leaf, then you will have to send us your cancelled cheque leaf along with one of the following documents:

- A self-attested copy of your bank statement (from one of last three months)

- A self-attested copy of your bank passbook with some recent transaction entries

Yes, you can send the cheque leaf on our WhatsApp number 9082820537 or to our email ID instamf@sharekhan.com
