What is Director Identification Number (DIN)?

Director identification number is the number allotted to a proposed or the existing director of the company. In order to obtain DIN, you need to submit or update KYC details via e-form DIR-3 to the ministry of corporate affairs (MCA).

Anyone who wants to be a director of one or more than one company has to mandatorily submit this form. As you know, MCA needs to update its registry and it can only be done when all the directors of the company will submit their KYC details annually to Ministry of corporate affairs (MCA).
