How to share Aadhaar eKYC service with fintech partners, insurance brokers, subsbrokers etc without compromising data security

Most of the major Insurance companies, Banks, Stockbrokers, NBFC, etc relay on partners firms such as insurance brokers, banking correspondents, sub-brokers, fintech startups,  etc. for onboard new customers. Usually, the KYC data of the customers are collected by these partners and shared with the major BFSIs. With more BFSI companies getting back their access to Aadhaar eKYC service, we look at how partner-based customer onboarding can be done via Aadhaar eKYC.

Aadhaar EKYC is the most efficient way of onboarding customers, but there are restrictions laid down by UIDAI for sharing EKYC API's with partners.  As per UIDAI, the Aadhaar authentication can only be performed by the company that is registered as KUA even when the customer is onboarded by a partner firm that is interfacing the customer. The ideal way to handle the situation is for the organisation is to have a website hosted or a signed mobile SDK that is made available to its partners for Aadhaar authentication. At Finahub, we have taken this a step further by providing data sharing control to the organisation so that they can determine which KYC data elements are getting shared with their partners.

This will make real-time eKYC (Electronic Know Your Customer) possible for these companies. However, the customer doesn't need to choose Aadhaar authentication services.
