Giving immediate response to the Reserve Bank of India's (RBI's) initiative for rationalisation of compliance to KYC requirements, the IDBI Bank has launched the facility of periodic KYC updation through the V-CIP (Video based Customer identification process).

On 5th May 2021, RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das had announced to rationalise certain components of the extant KYC norms.
