Section 156 of the Companies Act, 2013 (‘Act’ for short) provides that every existing director shall, within one month of the receipt of Director Identification Number from the Central Government, intimate his Director Identification Number to the company or all companies wherein he is a director.

Intimation of DIN by company

Section 157(1) imposes obligation on the part of the company to inform DIN to Registrar of Companies (‘RoC’ for short).  The said section provides that every company shall, within fifteen days of the receipt of intimation under section 156, furnish the Director Identification Number of all its directors to the Registrar or any other officer or authority as may be specified by the Central Government with such fees as may be prescribed or with such additional fees as may be prescribed  and every such intimation shall be furnished in such form and manner as may be prescribed.   Rule 10A (2) of the Companies (Appointment and Qualification of Directors) Rules, 2014 provides that the intimation by the company of Director Identification Number of its directors under section 157 of the Act shall be furnished in Form DIR-3C within fifteen days of receipt of intimation under section 156.”

Section 157(2) provides that if a company fails to furnish Director Identification Number the company shall be punishable with fine which shall not be less than twenty-five thousand rupees but which may extend to one lakh rupees and every officer of the company who is in default shall be punishable with fine which shall not be less than twenty-five thousand rupees but which may extend to one lakh rupees.

Amendment to Rules

The Central Government made the Companies (Appointment and Qualifications of Directors) Fourth Amendment Rules, 2018 to amend the Companies (Appointment and Qualifications of Directors) Rules, 2014 which came into effect from 14.07.2018.

Every individual who has already been allotted a Director Identification Number (DIN) as at 31st March, 2018, shall submit e-form DIR-3 KYC on or before 31st August, 2018.

Deactivation of DIN

Clause 3(i) of the amendment Rules inserted 11(2) which provides that the Central Government or Regional Director (Northern Region), or any officer authorized by the Central Government or Regional Director (Northern Region) shall, deactivate the Director Identification Number (DIN), of an individual who does not intimate his particulars in e-form DIR-3-KYC within stipulated time in accordance with rule 12A.

Re-activation of DIN

Rule 3(i) of the amendment Rules also inserted Rule 11(3) which provides that the de-activated DIN shall be re-activated only after e-form DIR-3-KYC is filed along with fee as prescribed under Companies (Registration Offices and Fees) Rules, 2014 i.e., ₹ 5,000/-
