|The financing operations in the stock markets are carried out through banking channels. The nature of the funds flowing into the stock markets would be reflected in the accounts opened with the banks together with the customer due diligence (CDD) norms applicable to such accounts. In addition, Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) registered intermediaries are required to follow stringent Know Your Customer (KYC) norms on an ongoing basis and are also required to file Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs) to the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) in case of suspicious activities of their clients. |
