The Director Identification Number, which has to be obtained by all directors on the boards of listed as well as unlisted companies, will now be available online immediately as the government has simplified the process of getting DIN.
At present, it takes about 2-5 days in this process of filing applications, their examination and allotment of DIN.
Directors will be have to file all details electronically with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs to obtain DIN, MCA Joint Secretary Avinash Srivastav told reporters here.
“DIN applications will be filed in e-form DIN-1 and scanned documents in support of the particulars of the applicant will be attached with the e-form. No physical documents will be accepted. This will make the process less time consuming and more transparent,” Srivastav said.
