The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has announced that it would be conducting KYC of all Directors of all companies through a new e-form viz. DIR-3 KYC, as part of updating its registry. The form should be mandatory filed with the Unique Personal Mobile Number and Personal Email ID, using the DSC (PAN authenticated Class – 2 Digital Signature) of that particular Director and would be duly verified by One Time Password (OTP).
Accordingly, it is mandatory for all the Directors including Disqualified Directors, who have been allotted DIN on or before 31.03.2018 and having DIN status as ‘APPROVED’ to file Form DIR-3 KYC on or before 31.08.2018.
If failed to file the form on or before 31.08.2018, the DINs will be marked as ‘DEACTIVATED’ by MCA21 system with reason as ‘Non-filing of DIR-3 KYC’.
