Worried your Kotak 811 bank account freeze? Here's what you need to do

Banks offer different banking products and service such as savings account, internet banking facility etc. to their customers. However, banks can also freeze the bank accounts of their customers due to various reasons. Some of the common reasons why banks block accounts include  wrong information and suspicious activity. However, banks can freeze Limited KYC or e-KYC digital accounts for different reasons such as breaching the maximum transaction limit.

Kotak 811 is one such digital account that can be opened completely online. Customers can open the zero balance bank account through the Aadhaar card and PAN card. There are four variants of Kotak 811: 811 Lite, 811 Limited KYC, 811 Full KYC Account and 811 Edge. As the KYC procedure is not complete in Lite and Limited KYC account, customers of these two variants of Kotak 811 are prone to get their account frozen.  

Why is your Kotak 811 frozen?   

As the bank account is opened without in-person verification, there are certain restrictions on the customers. Customers have to verify their documents through physical verification or through biometric processes by visiting the bank branch or booking an appointment through the mobile banking app.

A full KYC account is valid for lifetime without any restriction on debit and credit.
