    “The last date for 2018-19 is 30th Sep 2019”

    I think the Last date for 2018-19 was 5th October 2019. Thereafter late fees was chargeable.

    DIN of one of the Director has been deactivated due to non-filing of DIR-3 KYC . Now we are trying to file KYC form with late fee but the problem is that his PAN has been updated recently with Correct Date of Birth and upon prescutiny of Form DIR-3KYC an error message is shown that DIN details are not matching with PAN details . So his DIN details needs to be corrected through Form DIR-6 .But we are unanble to file form DIR-6 because DIN of director is shown as INVALID in the form. Please guide us how to solve this matter.
