General Circular No. 07/2019


5th Floor ‘A’ Wing Shastri Bhawan
Dr. R. P. Road, New Delhi

Dated: 27.06.2019

All Regional Directors,
All Registrars of Companies,
All Stakeholders.

Subject: Filing DIR-3 KYC under the Companies Act. 2013- regarding.


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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. This issues with approval of the competent authority.

Yours faithfully

(KMS Narayanan)
Assistant Director (Policy)
