DIN VERIFICATION- A identification of Director
Verification of Director is being done through checking of unique mobile number and email id of each director by Registrar of companies whether he is alive or not. It is as per Rule 12A of The Companies (Appointment and Qualification of Directors) Rules 2014.
The Rule came from financial year 2017-18 where it was said that each and every director as on 31st March 2018 should file Form DIR-3 KYC on or before 30th Sept 2018.

Every individual who holds a Director Identification Number (DIN) as on 31st March of a financial year as per these rules shall, submit e-form DIR-3-KYC for the said financial year to the Central Government on or before 30th, September of immediate next financial year.
