In this regard, we would like to inform you the following changes with respect to investments in the name of Minor would be implemented shortly:

If in case any other bank account is registered in the folio, which is not in the name of the minor or if minor is not part of the account with the guardian, change of pay-out bank mandate would be insisted and only post registration of the minor account redemption would be processed.
  • Once the minor attains the status of a major, then the individual is required to complete necessary KYC formalities and update their bank account details to enable the change of status in folio from minor to major.
