Investment to be made over the next five years

Mobile wallet major MobiKwik on Wednesday said that the company plans to invest Rs 400 crore over a period of five years in know-your-client (KYC) compliance.

The company will be investing Rs 100 crore in doing KYC for 2 crore users within the next 12 months.

"We have set a target of achieving 2 crore full KYC wallets within the next one year and we are expecting an expenditure of around Rs 50 per customer", Bipin Preet Singh, Co-founder & CEO, MobiKwik, said in a statement here.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in its revised set of guidelines on inter-operability issued earlier this month has sought stricter KYC requirements for prepaid payment instrument licence holders such as MobiKwik. Full KYC wallets are allowed to have a balance limit of Rs 1 lakh at any point of time.
