Documentation requirements for savings account

All you need are a passport size photograph in addition to one proof of identity and one proof of address. Your Aadhar card, Passport, Driving Licence, establish both your identity and your address ! The PAN Card is only a proof of identity, it does not prove your address. 

PAN card:

If you have a PAN Card, it is MANDATORY to provide it at the time of account opening. Note that your PAN Card proves who you are(identity) but does not carry your address.Your PAN card makes a lot of transactions very easy. Booking deposits greater than 50000, buying and selling mutual funds and shares,and many others. It assures us that your transactions are Income-Tax compliant. This is why it would be great for you if you added your PAN card to the Account Opening Documentation. 


It is a verified photographic proof of your address, from the government (UIDAI: Unique Identification Authority Of India).If you don’t have an Aadhaar Card, we will help you get started. But you should then bring your valid passport/driving licence as identity and address proof.

Other valid documents are:

  • Passport
  • Voter’s Identity Card (Election Card)
  • Permanent Driving License which is valid with the photograph affixed
