DIR-3 KYC

 

ROC DIR-3 KYC

What is the DIR-3 KYC?

Director identification number (DIN) is a unique identification number given to a person wanting to be a director or an existing director of a company. In this digitised era, application in eForm DIR-3 was sufficient to obtain DIN. This was a one-time process for any person who wants to be a director in one or more companies. However, now with the move of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) to update its registry, all directors with a DIN will have to submit their KYC details annually in eForm DIR-3 KYC.

Who has to file eForm DIR-3 KYC?

As per MCA recent announcement, any director who was allotted a DIN by or on 31st March 2018 and whose DIN is in approved status, will have to submit his KYC details to the MCA. Further, this procedure is mandatory for the disqualified directors too.

When has to be done?

From the Financial Year 2019-20 onwards, it is mandatory for every director who has been allotted a DIN on or before the end of the financial year and whose DIN is in approved status, will have to file form DIR-3 KYC before 30th September of the immediately next financial year.

For example- For the Financial Year 2020-21, the directors having DIN or Director Partner Identification Number (DPIN) and the directors allotted with a DIN/DPIN by 31st March 2021, need to file the eForm DIR-3 KYC before 30th September 2021.
