As part of updating its registry, MCA is conducting KYC of all Directors of all companies through a new eform viz. DIR-3 KYC. Accordingly, every Director who has been allotted DIN on or before 31 March, 2018 and whose Director Identification Number (DIN) is in ‘Approved’ status, were mandatorily required to file form DIR-3 KYC on or before 15 September, 2018 without any fee. The form were required be filed by every Director using his/her Digital Signature Certificate and duly certified by a practicing professional (CA/CS/CMA). Filing of DIR-3 KYC were mandatory for Disqualified Directors as well.

As the last date to file DIR-3 KYC is over i.e. 15 September 2018, the non-compliant DIN have since been marked as ‘Deactivated due to non-filing of DIR-3 KYC’. However, MCA has given an opportunity¬†to get the DIN reactivated by filing DIR-3 KYC along with a fee of Rs.500 from 21st September till 5th October 2018(both days inclusive). From 6th October 2018 onwards, a fee of Rs.5000 instead of Rs. 500 will be required to be paid for reactivation.
