You can create a Scripbox account by clicking on SIGN-UP and providing the data we need. This is the minimum data we require from you, in order to comply with mutual fund regulations. Once you’ve signed-up, when you can start investing depends on a few things.
a) If you’ve already done your one-time Know Your Customer (KYC) for mutual funds
Most well-known banks (e.g. SBI, ICICI, HDFC, Axis) support Net Banking for mutual funds - you can place your first investment NOW
b) One-time KYC for first-time mutual fund investors
If you’re investing for the first time, regulations require you to undergo this one-time KYC process. Please sign the pre-filled KYC form we’ll e-mail you, and mail it back to us along with signed copies of your PAN card and address proof. You will also need to record a short 30-second video selfie. Once we receive your documents and video, we will activate your account within 1 working day, after which you can invest using Net Banking.
c) Monthly Systematic Investment Plans (SIPs) for automated investing
If you’re investing from HDFC or Axis Bank, you can start monthly recurring investments by creating an E-mandate NOW
For other banks, and for banks that don’t support Net Banking for mutual funds (e.g. Citibank, HSBC, Bandhan), we’ll need you to sign and e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org a photo of the pre-filled bank mandate we'll e-mail you. We do not need the hard copy. It takes 10-15 working days for most banks to approve the mandate, after which you can setup your monthly SIP.
