CKYC Error while opening account

I tried to open an account and an error message popped up Please help me with this

Hey Kishore!

Welcome to the Niyo Community!

We regret to inform you that you do not meet the onboarding criteria for opening the Niyo Global account by SBM. Being said that, we’d also like to keep you posted that we are working on alternate ways to onboard customers such as yourselves. Stay tuned! LK

@Lucky Thanks for the information. I am traveling to Europe in first week of Feb for my higher studies. I tried to open account with my dad’s name and he has CIBIL score 700+.
Is there any other way to get the card?

Kishore, kindly note that the CIBIL has nothing to do with the account opening process. You have to have your CKYC records updated in order to open the Niyo Global account by SBM(in your case it should be your father’s).

In the meantime, we’d recommend opening a NiyoX account as a backup. You can order an upgraded VISA Platinum Debit Card from NiyoX. This card comes with Zero Forex Markup.

I am getting a CKYC error, even though I have a CKYC number and a Normal KYC. Can someone please help me with the same ?

Hey @Anand_Tangri! Inconvenience regretted! It looks like you haven’t met the required onboarding criteria due to which we couldn’t onboard you for Niyo Global by SBM. Our system fetches your OTP-based e-KYC details. It looks like you had one in the past with your bank. We kindly request you connect with your bank and update it to the Normal KYC and then you should be able to onboard for Niyo Global by SBM.

Regards,

I tried creating an account today, but it failed after submitting all the details saying that I don’t have a CKYC, but I checked and found out that I have a normal CKYC. Please help resolve this issue.
