What is Upstox UCC id?
This UCC id is a kind of KYC (Know your client) — an identification that is common in the banking sector. UCC stands for Unique Client Code and is basically an alphanumeric/numeric representations of the client,s account in the brokerage database.
There are multiple ways to refer to the ID like Upstox Client id, Upstox user id, Upstox login ID. But it is simply a Beneficial Owner Identification Number (BOID) that gives the user licence to trade and an address to receive and send emails.
After completing documentation concerning Demat account creation on Upstox, it’ll take about two working days to get the UCC ID and password via email and SMS.
It goes without saying that every client has a different UCC ID, which works as an identity upon which every transaction on Upstox takes place and provides further security to the client’s valuables. In addition, it helps the service provider keep tabs on the functions and monitoring of users account portfolio and funds distribution.
UCC ID holds client PAN number, DOB, mobile number, email id, bank account details, TM/CM code, among other personal details.
Besides, the concept of mapping UCC ID with Demat account is rather new. SEBI implemented it in its circular of 2019 to facilitate the working of an early warning mechanism to detect the stockbroker’s diversion of client’s securities.
How to retrieve the UCC id in UpStox?
