How & Why Is It Important To Get PayTM KYC Done?

Have you been told that you will not be able to transfer money from PayTM wallet into your bank account unless you got PayTM KYC done? Well, don’t panic already! It is true that getting your PayTM KYC done has now been made compulsory. 

What is PayTM KYC?

KYC stands for Know Your Customer. It refers to a standard set of documents that enable the verification of the identity of a person. The common documents include photo ID proof, a proof of residence, a proof of signature, and such. In fact, Aadhaar can be the best option for KYC. This is because Aadhaar contains all the above information, as well as biometric data of a person. Hence, Aadhaar can help verify all the details regarding a person.
