The purpose of this document is to establish Know Your Customer (KYC) documentation policy for the IIFL Finance Limited (IIFL). All the loans originated by IIFL would follow this KYC documentation policy.

All products of IIFL have same KYC documentation policy defined in their respective manuals. In case of any change floated by regulator, the required changes were required to be done separately in each manual.
