  1. shyam singh says:

    What is the fee for KYC completion? And is DSC for DIR KYC is okay to obtain?

  2. Ashwin says:

    Should a person who is a director to 3 companies, update KYC 3 times (for all the companies)?
    or is it will it be enough if he files his KYC once using his DIN and DSC?

    • shalu says:

      No only 1 DIR-3 KYC form is required to be filed. DIR-3 KYC is for Director KYC not based on company. If person is having approved DIN, DIR-3KYC needs to be filed even if he is not holding directorship in any company.

  3. SUBODH says:

    A PERSON OF 87 YEARS OF AGE WHO IN INCAPACITATED DUE TO SICKNESS. AND NOT A MEMBER OF ANY BOARD AS OF TODAY.AND DOESNOT WANT TO RENEW DIN NO. ARE WE SUPPOSE TO FILE KYC.DSC HAS ALSO EXPIRED

  4. Padmanabh Ranchhoddas Merchant says:

    on MCA website for Download of Forms, DIR -3 KYC is not found to be available. Will it be available on the website of MCA 21?
    secondly, how DIN holder without DSC is expected to file DIR – 3 KYC? Please advise.
