DIR-3 KYC Filing (Director 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.
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 MCAs move 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 MCAs recent announcement, any director who was allotted a DIN by or on 31 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.
What are the checkpoints involved in filing the eForm DIR-3 KYC?
- Every Directors unique personal mobile number and email address will have to be provided while filing the eForm. This number and email address will be verified by an OTP (one-time password).
- The second check implanted here would be that the director has to use his own digital signature while filing this eForm.
- Further, the third test to ensure that complete and right information is provided will be that the eForm should be certified by a practising Chartered Accountant or Company Secretary, or Cost and Management Accountant.
