Director Identification Number (D.I.N) refers to a unique identification number allotted to an individual who is willing to be a director or is an existing director of a company.

DIN is obtained by filing an application in e-form DIR 3

Now MCA has made it mandatory for all directors having DIN to submit their KYC details in e-form DIR 3 KYC every year.

Further this procedure is applicable to disqualified directors too.


MCA has now made it mandatory for every director who has been allotted DIN on or before the end of financial year, would be mandatorily required to file form DIR 3 KYC before 30th September of the immediately next financial year.

After the expiry of the mentioned due dates the MCA system will mark all non-compliant DINs fir which the DIR 3 KYC form has not been filled as ‘Deactivated due to non-filing of DIR 3 KYC’.

Due Date

The due date of filing DIR 3 KYC is 30th September of the next financial year. Any non-compliance with not filing the form within the due date shall lead to Deactivation of DIN and penalty charges.


If the DIN holder does not file his annual KYC within the prescribed due date of each financial year, such a DIN shall be marked as “Deactivated due to non-filing of DIR 3 KYC’ and shall remain in such Deactivated status until KYC is done with a fee of Rs 5,000.
