KYC of Directors


As a part of compliance and information drive to stop the misuse of a persons documents and identity by paper companies as has been done in past MCA has asked for all Directors whose DIN was in “Approved” status as on 31/03/2018 to get their KYC done as a one time exercise before 31/08/2018 by filing form DIR-3 KYC

All new DIN KYC will be mandatory once every year by 31st March .


1)The Unique Personal Mobile Number and Personal Email ID would have to be mandatorily indicated and would be duly verified by One Time Password(OTP)

2)The form should be filed by every Director using his own DSC

3)The form thus filed should be duly certified by a practicing professional (CA/CS/CMA).

4)Filing of DIR-3 KYC would be mandatory for Disqualified Directors also.

5)After expiry of the due date by which the KYC form is to be filed, the MCA21 system will mark all approved DINs (allotted on or before 31st March 2018) against which DIR-3 KYC form has not been filed as ‘Deactivated’ with reason as ‘Non-filing of DIR-3 KYC’.

6)After the due date filing of DIR-3 KYC in respect of such deactivated DINs shall be allowed upon payment of a specified fee only

7)Any other action for non compliance may be taken

8) Documents required are PAN, Aadhaar, Passport (Though not mandatory) any one address proof is mandatory but technically since DSC is required which says that it has to be linked to same PAN used to get DSc
