The due date for filing DIR-3 KYC for the financial year 2018-19 was 14th October 2019. After the expiry of the due date, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has initiated the process of deactivating the non-compliant DINs.
The process of deactivating the non-compliant DINs is in progress and will be completed shortly. It should be noted that the form DIR-3 KYC and web service DIR-3 KYC will not be available for filing during the pendency of this activity.
Filing of DIR-3 KYC and DIR-3 KYC WEB can be made after completion of the scheduled activity, as above when the form & service are re-deployed on the portal after payment of applicable fees.
The MCA said in a press release said that, “The DINs which have not complied with the requirement of filing DIR-3 KYC has since been marked as ‘Deactivated due to non-filing of DIR-3 KYC’. Such DINs are not allowed to be used for filing any eforms on MCA21 portal. In case the present status of your DIN is ‘Deactivated due to non-filing of DIR-3 KYC’, you are required to file ‘KYC’ using eform DIR-3 KYC or DIR-3-KYC-WEB service as applicable with prescribed fee of INR 5000 to re-activate your de-activated DIN”.
