    Dear Kajal,

    Is Aadhaar mandatory, what if any director doesn’t have aadhaar but has other documents e.g. Passport, DL, Electoral I Card etc.

  2. Kajal Goyal says:

    Hi Sarayu,

    A Director who is NRI has to mandatorily attach self attested copy of his passport along with the permanent and/or present address proof of the country in which he is residing. Further, any foreign document to be valid in India in any authority is required to attested.
