Date Extended for Filing DIR-3 KYC till 5th October 2018

Date Extended for Filing Dir-3 KYC

In Previous scenario, all the directors whether Indian or foreign national who already have the DIN on or before 31st March 2018 and their status of DIN is appearing as “Approved” are mandatorily required to update their KYC by filing the e-form Date Extended for Filing DIR-3 KYC on or before 15th September 2018.

The First Notification to file the DIR-3 KYC was issued on 21/08/2018 with the deadline until 31/08/2018. Through the Second Notification, the last date of DIR-3 KYC filling was extended to the 15/09/2018. However, the form was allowed to be filled with the delay fees of Rs 5000 after 15th September. Now recently, date has been extended from 15th September 2018 to 5th October 2018, along with the fees of Rs 500/-. On 6th October onwards fee is enhanced from Rs 500/- to Rs 5000/-.

All the speculation about extension of date extended for filing the DIR-3-KYC and the relaxation in the late filing fees, which was Rs 5000/- previously, came to rest, when MCA issued the notification with reference to the Companies (Registration Offices and Fees) Fifth Amendment Rules, 2018 dated 20th September 2018 about extension of date from 15th of September to 5th of October 2018.

Yes, the date has been extended from 15th September 2018 to 5th October 2018, but with a twist. The twist is you can file the DIR-3 KYC until 5th of October 2018 along with the fees of Rs 500/-.

Now, this keeps me Wondering about the following:

  • What if a DIR-3 KYC is filed after 5th October 2018?
  • Is, that allowed?
  • If allowed what will be the delay fees this time and what will be the deadline?

Well! MCA did unwrap these questions in the same notification as follows:

  1. Yes, the DIR-3 KYC can be filled at the MCA portal after 5th October 2018 also.
  2. In case of filing the DIR-3 KYC from 6th October 2018 onwards, it can be filed along with the fees of Rs 5000/-.

Note that the Non-compliant director’s DIN has been since initiated to be marked as DEACTIVATED. However, the status of such DIN will change on filing the DIR-3 KYC along with the applicable fee. On successful application of the form (DIR-3 KYC), it will be approved on STP basis. Once it is approved, the system will automatically ‘reactivate’ the DIN.
