Revenue Department said that it is a voluntary measure and use of Aadhaar authentication service is voluntary. It said, if some investor gives PAN, then they need not go for Aadhaar authentication. Finance Secretary Dr. Ajay Bhushan Pandey said the decision will help these entities to perform in real time, do e-KYC and will also reduce their cost of transaction. He said this will also be beneficial to the customers or the investors, especially the small and retail investors, as they need not submit physical papers or documents for KYC.
