> The Ministry of Corporate Affairs has issued a General Circular No. 07/2019 dated 27TH June, 2019 and has clarified the following:

a) Every person who has already filed DIR-3 KYC will only be required to complete his / her KYC through a simple web-based verification service, with pre-filled data based on the records in the registry, for ease of verification by the person concerned.

However, in case a person wishes to update his Mobile no. or e-Mail Address, he would be required to file e-form DIR-3 KYC, as this facility of updation is not being proposed in the web-based service.


In case of updation in any other personal detail, first the e-form DIR-6 may be filed for updation of the same and then KYC can be done through the web-based service.


-To update only mobile no./email id– e-Form DIR-3 KYC IS required.
