In a major relief to the mutual fund distributors, NISM has asked AMFI to give relaxation to mutual fund distributors to renew ARN. With this, ARNs which are due for renewal or expiring between March 15, 2020, and September 30, 2021, continue to remain valid till October 1, 2021.
AMFI will soon make a formal announcement to extend this facility to MF distributors.
In a note, NISM said, “The validity of certificates of certificate holders, who could not appear or attend or enroll for certification examinations or CPE programs or e CPE programs and as such, could not renew/are not in a position to renew their certificates, during March 15, 2020, to September 30, 2021 (or time period based on future developments / the Government directions), the validity of their certificates shall be extended till October 1, 2021.”
You can renew your ARN/EUIN from your home or office by appearing for eCPE. Once you appear for this refresher course, NISM will issue a certificate for the successful completion of the mandatory training with AMFI.
The renewal process is paperless and is Aadhaar based. You must ensure the linkage of the Aadhaar with your mobile number.
You can call the NISM helpdesk at 8080806476 or write to NISM at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and inquiries.
