The accounts for which KYC procedures have not been completed within the stipulated time, shall have to be completed within 31 March, 2010 by sending letters to the customers in appropriate manner and by communicating with them in other ways. The accounts for which it would not be possible to complete the KYC procedures within 31 March, 2010 shall have to be marked as ‘dormant’ after 31 March, 2010.
