Such financial proofs are to be reviewed periodically as per exchange guidelines .


  1. If you are uploading a pdf please ensure that you enter the password in the 'File password' field. Alternatively, you can use this website to remove password protection and upload the file without a password.
  2. You will not be able to upload multiple files as proof. You have to either upload a .zip file containing the multiple proof files or merge the pdfs and upload a single file. Refer to this article to know more.

Once you submit your financial proof, the upload status will show as pending. It will be sent for review to our verification team. The status will show as pending until the verification has been completed. If you upload multiple times, the latest document uploaded will override the previous uploads.

We will be sending the approval or rejection status via SMS and E-mail. If the financial proof you have uploaded is rejected, you will have to re-upload another financial proof here .
