"NSE has taken a step towards 'digital India' by announcing an e-mandate facility on its mutual fund platform. Implementation of e-mandates is a very significant step towards digitisation of transactions in mutual funds.

"The objective is to offer simple and hassle free alternative to the members, MF distributors in form of e-mandate wherein members/MF distributors can register mandate of an investor online, which will be digitally signed based on Aadhaar based OTP validation," NSE Managing Director and CEO Vikram Limaye said in a statement.
