WHAT IS DIR-3KYC – APPLICATION FOR KYC OF DIRECTORS

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 director in one or more companies. However, now with the move of the ministry of corporate Affairs (MCA) 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 MCA recent announcement, any director who was allotted a DIN by or on 31st 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.

From the Financial year 2019-20 onwards, it is mandatory for every director who has been allotted a DIN on or before the end of the financial year and whose DIN is in approved status, will have to have to file form DIR-3 KYC before 30th September of the immediately next financial year.

CHECKPOINTS FOR FILING THE EFORM DIR-3 KYC

  • Every director’s 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.
