Setting up the CAMS e Mandate will be a completely paperless process.  The only requirement is Aadhaar link in the bank account where the mandate has to be registered.

Investors can set up the CAMS e Mandate and use it whenever they initiate a new SIP.  As the e Mandate is registered at a PAN level, it allows for setting up any number of Systematic Investment Plans (SIPs) across all funds serviced by CAMS. Filling up separate mandate forms every time a SIP is started / renewed will now be a practice of the past.

Speaking on the launch of CAMS e Mandate, Anuj Kumar , Deputy CEO, CAMS explained “The conventional method to set up SIPs with a mandate involved laborious practices like filling out forms, cheque copy, submission to Bank via Mutual Funds / Registrar, registration process at the bank and eventually starting the SIP only after 30 days. Investors had to repeat the process for every new SIP.  CAMS e Mandate will aim at transforming the way mandates are registered with a complete digital process and  foster faster commencement of SIPs. Registration at PAN level makes the CAMS e Mandate uniquely versatile”.
