KYC verification for Mutual fund investments

Know Your Customer (KYC) verification for mutual funds has been made mandatory for all investments in mutual funds since January 1, 2011. CVL India has appoint several Point of Service centers like Karvy Computershare to whom the investor is supposed to submit the documents
An investor faces several problems such as.
1. The actual verification process can take up to a month.
2. The data captured by the Point of Service center (in this case M/s Karvy Computershare) may differ from the data you have entered in the form
3. Even if you are a lady who has never married in her life, the KYC acknowledgement letter will incorrectly address you as “Mrs” instead of Miss.  Despite making repeated phone calls and sending emails, letters sent by courier and speed post to M/s Karvy Computershare  and M/s CVL India, requested them to send a corrected KYC acknowledgement letter,  there is no reply after 2 months.
