What is DIR-3 KYC with Amended provisions?

As per rule 12A of the Companies (Appointment and Qualification of Directors) Rules 2014, “Every individual who has been allotted a Director Identification Number (DIN) as on 31st March of a financial year as per these rules shall, submit e-form DIR-3-KYC to the Central Government on or before 30th April of immediate next financial year.

Provided that every individual who has already been allotted a Director Identification Number (DIN) as at 31st March, 2018, shall submit e-form DIR-3 KYC on or before 5th October, 2018.”

Points to be consider while Filing DIR-3 KYC

1. 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 and should be duly certified by a practicing professional (CA/CS/CMA).

3. Certified True of PAN, Aadhar and Passport if any needs to be attached which should also be certified by the practicing professional.

The interesting thing about the form DIR-3 KYC is that Filing of DIR-3 KYC would be mandatory for Disqualified Directors also.
