As soon as we upload customer records to CKYC, when will we get the response from CKYC? Is it real time?

The response will occur in three phases: a) After performing the SFTP upload, you will receive the initial response, 'response_0', in the 'SFTP response' folder. This response will be generated immediately and will solely verify the validity of the data format. b) At the Checker level, the same response will be received for authorization purposes. Once it is approved, a subsequent response called 'response_1' will be generated. c) In 'response_1', you will receive an 11-digit reference number that can be used to track the status of the upload. The final response, indicating either rejection or approval, will be generated within 24 hours.

If any customer's data gets rejected by CKYC after the upload, what steps can be taken to rectify the issue?

A response will be generated. The response will contain the reference number of the failed (rejected) records along with the reasons for the rejection.

How can you determine the number of customers for whom a financial institution has utilized the Search and Download functionalities?

To track the usage of the Search & Download functionalities, the financial institution assigns a unique reference ID to each request. By analyzing these reference IDs, along with the type of request and its status, we can accurately determine the number of hits. The system maintains a unique identifier for each hit, ensuring accurate tracking of usage.
