The objective of the CoE is to enable start-ups to build technologies and solutions that will help financial institutions and start-ups find alternative mechanism for knowing their customers based on existing Know Your Customer (KYC) documents, according to a Tamil Nadu government Order.

An outlay of ₹23 crore has been earmarked for the CoE with STPI receiving a Letter of Intent from AU Capital Partners Ltd - UK, and Pontaq-UK for $1 million.
