KTC

Know Thy Customer

Information Retrieval from Photos.



With a rapidly growing economy and well-developed financial systems, India is strongly committed to addressing unlawful practices. Consequently RBI released guidelines for Know your customer or KYC back in 2002. Since then KYC has been moulded and adopted by an ever-increasing population of businesses. Companies of all sizes use KYC processes as a proxy for verification/identification of their proposed agents, consultants, vendors, or distributors. Businesses are increasingly demanding that customers provide detailed due-diligence information.


Despite the government’s efforts of embracing technological advances swiftly, the KYC process today is riddled with problems. The current methodology of manually capturing and parsing information from government issued documents has been proven to be ineffective and non-scalable. This is in addition to the fact that traditionally, the process of capturing information by humans is error prone and slow.


Businesses today, spend precious resources including but not limited to time, money and manpower to ensure high standards of information retrieval. This did not seem like a reasonable investment to us.
