The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (the MCA) on 5 July 2018, had mandated to every Individual who has been allotted a Director Identification Number (DIN) as on 31 March of every year to file the Form DIR 3KYC on or before 30 April. In this regard, stakeholders were facing issues in filing the said Form DIR-3 KYC for the Financial Year 2019-20. The MCA issued a clarification in this regard stating that:
- DIN holders are required to file the DIR-3 KYC form every year.
- The e-form presently available on the portal does not cater for the filing form on an annual basis and filing in respect of DINs allotted post 31 March 2018.
- With the objective of making the form more user-friendly, the form is presently being modified to enable pre-filling of data & information.
- The revised form will be shortly available for filing and can be filed without any fee within 30 days from the deployment of the form.
