Dear Reader,

 The last date for filing form DIR-3 KYC without fee for all DIN holders (including Disqualified Directors) has expired on 15th September 2018.

 After 15th September, 2018, MCA-21 system will mark all approved DINs (allotted on or before 31st March, 2018) against which DIR-3 KYC form has not been filed as ‘Deactivated’ with a reason as ‘Non filing of Form DIR-3 KYC’.

 Thereafter, Form DIR-3 KYC may be filed in respect of such deactivated DINs only with a fee of Rs. 5,000/- without prejudice to any other action that may be taken.

 The process of deactivating the non-compliant DINs is in progress and is likely to be completed by 17th September 2018.  Form DIR-3 KYC will not be available for filing during the pendency of this activity (from 16th September 2018 to 17th September 2018).
