- Director Identification Number (DIN) was allotted to them by or on 31st March 2018
- DIN is in approved status
However, when a director fails to file the e-Form by the due dates (or extended due date) on MCA 21 portal, the DIN of such director is marked as ‘Deactivated due to Non-filing of DIR-3 KYC’ by the department. In such cases, the director can re-activate his DIN by filing the missed out e-Form DIR-3 KYC after paying a late fine of INR 5,000.
Further, MCA has recently modified the Incorporation Rules. Now any company which was incorporated before 31st December, 2017 has to file E-Form Active i.e. Form 22A.
