Director KYC


Director KYC (Know Your Customer) is a mandatory annual process in India for all directors holding a Director Identification Number (DIN). It ensures the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) maintains an accurate and updated database of company directors.

Benefits of Director KYC

  1. Improved Corporate Governance: Ensures transparency and accountability by maintaining accurate director information. 
  2. Reduced Risk of Fraud: Helps deter unauthorized activities by verifying director identities. 
  3. Faster Regulatory Approvals: Streamlines government approvals with updated director details. 

Process of Filing Director KYC (DIR-3 KYC)

  1. Gather Documents: 
    • DIN of the director 
    • PAN Card copy 
    • Passport (if applicable) 
    • Aadhaar Card (optional) 
    • Address proof (utility bills, bank statements etc.) 
  2. Access MCA Portal: Visit the MCA portal and choose the DIR-3 KYC option.
  3. Fill & Submit Form: Enter DIN details and update contact information (mobile number, email address). 
  4. Verification: Verify PAN details and OTP received on the registered mobile number. 
  5. Sign & Submit:  Digitally sign the form using a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC).

Drawbacks of Non-Compliance

  1. Deactivated DIN: Failure to file DIR-KYC leads to DIN deactivation, hindering directors from holding board positions. 
  2. Penalty Fees: A penalty of ₹5000 is levied for reactivating a deactivated DIN. 
  3. Delayed Approvals: Delays in company registrations and filings due to inactive DINs.

  3. Passport (for foreign directors) 
  4. Proof of Address (utility bills, bank statements etc.)
