  1. Net Banking: Users can authenticate themselves through their net banking credentials.
  2. Digital Signature Certificate (DSC): Authentication can be performed using a Digital Signature Certificate.
  3. OTP on Mobile Number Registered with Aadhaar: Users receive a one-time password (OTP) on the mobile number registered with Aadhaar for authentication.
  4. Bank Account EVC: Authentication can be completed using Electronic Verification Code (EVC) received on the user’s bank account.
  5. Demat Account EVC: Users can authenticate themselves using Electronic Verification Code (EVC) received on their demat account.
