Subject: Extension of last date for filing of DIR-3 KYC under the Companies Act, 2013
As you are kindly aware that in terms of the provisions of Rule 12A of the Companies (Appointment and Qualification of Directors) Rules, 2014, every individual who holds a Director Identification Number (DIN) as on 31st March of a financial year is required to submit e-form DIR-3-KYC to the Central Government on or before 30th September of immediate next financial year.
In this regard, we wish to bring to your kind notice some of the practical difficulties which are being faced by the directors and professionals in filing DIR-3 KYC:
(i) login MCA portal
(ii) pre-scrutiny of form DIR-3 KYC
(iii) generation of OTP
(iv) ceiling of 10 KYC from one login per day
(v) use of special characters in the form
As a consequence, the directors are not able to file their KYC by due date i.e. 30 September, 2019. Considering this, we request to kindly consider granting extension of time for filing the DIR-3 KYC without levying any fee.
We shall be happy to provide any further information or clarification that may be desired in this regard by your good office.
