Why is Aadhaar Masking mandatory for Enterprises in BFSI?

On 29th May 2019, the Reserve Bank of India updated the master direction on KYC guidelines for regulated entities. One such update makes it mandatory for RBI Regulated Entities to mask or blackout the Aadhaar number of all customers from the Aadhaar image as part of the KYC process.

RBI KYC Master Directions:

The IRDAI Circular dated 29th Jan 2019 for allowing Aadhaar Card as one of the acceptable documents for KYC- under certain conditions: insurers should ensure that the first 8 digits of the Aadhaar number are properly/appropriately masked.

IRDAI Circular:

What is Masked Aadhaar?

Masked Aadhaar is similar to a regular Aadhaar with a difference that the Aadhaar number is partially hidden/masked/blacked-out and only last 4 digits of the Aadhaar number are visible.
