Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) vide its circular no. 7/2019 dated 27th June, 2019 has provided clarification for the purpose of filing form DIR-3 KYC under Rule 12A of the Companies (Appointment and Qualification of Directors) Rules, 2014:

  • Every person holding Director Identification No.(DIN No.), who has already filed DIR-3 KYC will only be required to complete his/her KYC through a simple web-based verification service, with pre-filled data based on the records in the registry, for ease of verification by the person concerned.
  • However, for updation of Mobile Number or E-mail ID, the DIN Holder will be required to file from DIR-3 KYC as this facility is not available in KYC through a simple web-based verification service.
  • For updation of any other personal detail (i.e. Name, Address, Aadhaar Number etc.) e-form DIR-6 may be filed before completion of KYC through the web-based service.

The amendment in the relevant rules including the amendment related to extension of time (allowing for adequate time) for completion of KYC through e-form DIR-3 KYC or the web-based service, as the case may be, is being notified shortly by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs.
