MCA to Extend Due Date for e form DIR 3 KYC and to Amend relevant Rules

In view of difficulties being faced by stakeholders, the MCA has clarified, vide General Circular 07/2019 dt. 27 June 2019, that rules and due date for filing filing e-form DIR-3 KYC, are under amendment/ extension and will be notified shortly. MCA has proposed to simply the directors KYC verification process, whereby the persons who have already filed DIR-3 KYC will be required to complete their KYC through a simple web-based verification service only, with pre-filled data based on the records in the registry, for ease of the person concerned.

MCA General Circular No. 07/2019 dt. 27 June 2019

1. 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 concerned. 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.
