In-Person Verification (IPV) is a required step before opening any trading account with Arihant. As per SEBI regulations, we need to verify that the account holder is an actual person and the documents / proofs sent by him or her match his true identity. Arihant has embraced internet technology and performs IPV using webcam and internet video.

When It Happens

IPV will be done over GTalk, Yahoo Messenger, or Skype -- whatever suits your preference. Once we have received your trading documents by courier, and have verified that they are correct, we will schedule a time with you to do an IPV. Please ensure that you have a working webcam (and microphone if possible) prior to scheduling an IPV. Please also ensure that you have your PAN card and address proof ready in hand prior to the IPV. We will call you over phone at the scheduled time and ask a few questions regarding your application to verify your identity and then move forward.
