MCA have been receiving a lot of requests for the extension of period for filing e-form DIR-3 KYC in accordance with Rule 12A of the Companies (Appointment and Qualification of Directors) Rules, 2014. However, MCA has not notified about 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.
But MCA has directed people who have already filed DIR-3 KYC are 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 the 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.
