The Companies (Appointment and Qualification of Directors) Rules 2014 state that “every individual who has been allotted a Director Identification Number (DIN) as on 31st March of a financial year shall submit e-form DIR-3 KYC to the Central Government”.
According to the company rules, DIR-3 KYC form must be filed by anyone holding a DIN i.e. Director Identification Number or DPIN i.e. Designated Partner Identification Number every year.
Applicability of DIR-3 KYC
The requirement to file DIR-3 KYC is applicable to the following individuals:
- Directors of a company who hold a DIN
- Designated Partners of a Limited Liability Partnership who hold a DPIN.
- Disqualified Directors.
Dir-3 KYC Due Date for 2019
A person liable to file the DIR KYC must file it each financial year before April 30. This year, the date to file the DIN KYC was April 30, 2019. However, the MCA has made certain changes to the rules, and the due date to file the DIR KYC is 30 days from the date on which the new KIR KYC eForm is deployed on the MCA portal.
Now, the due date to file DIR-3 KYC is September 30, 2019.
Failure To File DIR KYC
If a director fails to file the DIN KYC every financial year, the DIN of the Director will be marked ‘deactivated due to non-filing of DIR 3 KYC’. The director will also be liable to pay a penalty of INR 5000.
Also, if the director holds, multiple DINs then he/she must retain the oldest DIN and surrender all the latest DINs by filing DIR-5 e-form.
