What is DIR 3 KYC?

DIN (Director Identification Number) is an 8-digit number that is allotted to every individual who intends to become a director in a company or a designated partner of an LLP and KYC (Know your Customer) is a method for identifying and verifying the identity of the clients in a business. As a part of updating the registry and yearly verification of the profile of directors/designated partners with the government, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has introduced a new E-form DIR-3 KYC to be submitted every year by all the persons who are the directors of a company or designated partners of an LLP or person holding a DIN (Director Identification Number). The particulars and information of directors help the government to trace and verify the details such as identity, address, contact details, and other information of the director/designated partner holding DIN.

Who Needs To File Directors KYC?

Every individual person who holds a Director Identification Number (DIN) as of 31st March of the financial year has to file an E-Form DIR-3-KYC on or before 30th September of the next financial year.
In the case of LLP, a Designated partner is allotted Designated Partner Identification Number (DPIN) by MCA who is also equally obliged to file DIR-3-KYC every year on or before 30th September of the next financial year.
A person can also update his details including address, mobile number, email id, etc. using Form DIR-3-KYC. It is to be noted that Form DIR-3-KYC has to be filed by everyone who holds a DIN, the fact that presently he is not a Director or Designated Partner of any Company/LLP does not rescue him/her from filing DIR-3-KYC with MCA.

Why to File KYC?

Maintaining Active Director Identification Number (DIN): Ensuring timely submission of Form DIR-3-KYC is essential to retain the active status of a Director’s DIN. Failure to do so may result in deactivation by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA). An active DIN enables a director to assume roles in new companies or become a designated partner in a new Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) at any juncture, and also facilitates the signing of various forms.

Keeping Director Details Updated on MCA Database: Regular submission of Form DIR-3-KYC ensures that the director’s information remains current and can be amended as necessary in the MCA’s database.

Avoiding Significant Penalties: If a Director’s DIN is deactivated due to non-compliance with DIR-3-KYC filing requirements, reactivation can be achieved by paying a penalty of Rs. 5000 per Director. Timely submission of the form is crucial to evade hefty penalties.
