The objectives behind filing Director KYC are as follows:
According to the MCA’s recent announcement, any director who was allotted a DIN by or on 31st March 2018 and whose DIN is in approved status is required to submit his KYC details to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. Moreover, this procedure is mandatory for the disqualified directors as well.
From the FY 2019-20 onwards, it is mandatory for every director who has been allotted DIN on or before the end of the financial year and whose DIN is in approved status, is required to file form DIR-3 KYC prior to 30th September of the immediate next financial year.
For instance- For the FY 2020-21, the directors having DIN or Director Partner Identification Number (DPIN) and the directors allotted with a DIN or DPIN by March 31st 2021, should file the e-Form DIR-3 KYC before September 30th 2021.

Step-7 Click on Submit;
Step-8 Generate a Zero Rupee Challan;
Step-9 Check SRN status for confirming the KYC verification.
All Directors who meet both conditions mentioned below can file web based DIR-3 KYC:
If the director wants to update information, the DIR – 3 KYC form must be filed. If you have DIN and has not filed the KYC form or person who has already filed it but needs to update the information on the portal, then DIN KYC e-form should be filed.
Once the form is filed, then the director can confirm their details on the newly introduced web-based portal.
If Form DIR-3 KYC is filed within the due date of the respective financial year, no fee shall be payable. However, if it is filed after due date, for DIN status ‘Deactivated due to non-filing of DIR-3 KYC’ a fee of 500 rupees shall be payable from September 21st to October 05th 2018(Both days inclusive). From October 06th onwards a Fee of 5000 rupees becomes payable.

The director who has submitted e-form DIR-3KYC already in relation to any previous financial year, submits web form DIR-3KYC-Web through the web services in relation to the subsequent financial year.
