"The above listed entities shall get registered with UIDAI as KYC user agency ("KUA") and shall allow SEBI registered intermediaries/mutual fund distributors to undertake Aadhaar Authentication in respect of their clients for the purpose of KYC," the circular said.

Further, SEBI registered intermediaries and mutual fund distributors, who want to undertake Aadhaar authentication services through KUAs, are required to enter into an agreement with KUA and get themselves registered with UIDAI as sub-KUAs.

"The agreement in this regard shall be as prescribed by UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India)," Sebi said.

The KUAs and sub-KUAs need to follow the process as may be prescribed by UIDAI from time to time. They will also have to follow the process recommended by Sebi on e-KYC authentication facility.

The move is aimed at keeping money laundering in check. It comes after the government on 22 April notified certain stock/securities related entities, as per the recommendation by UIDAI and SEBI, to undertake Aadhaar authentication service of UIDAI under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002.
