Filing DIR-3 KYC under the Companies Act. 2013-(2019-Compliance)Nearxpert
MCA UPDATE 27.06.2019
The Ministry of Corporate Affairs has received representations from stakeholders
expressing certain difficulties in filing e-form DIR-3 KYC in accordance with Rule 12A of
the Companies (Appointment and Qualification of Directors) Rules, 2014. Requests have
also been made for extension of period for filing such form.
The matter has been examined and it is hereby informed that it is being proposed that
every person who has already filed DIR-3 KYC will only be required to complete his/her
KYC through a simple web-based verification service, with pre-filled data based on the
records in the registry, for ease of verification by the person concemed. However, in case
a person wishes to update his mobile no. or e-mail address, he would be required to file
e-form DIR-3 KYC, as this facility of updation is not being proposed in the web-based
service. In case of updation in any other personal detail, e-form DIR-6 may be filed for
updation of the same before completion of KYC through the web-based service.
The amendment in the relevant rules including the amendment related to extension of
time (allowing for adequate time) for completion of KYC through e-form DIR-3 KYC or
the web-based service, as the case may be, is being notified shortly. Stakeholders are
advised to take note of the same and file according to the revised notification.
