The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has introduced a new web-based KYC compliance procedure for directors in India. Earlier, an e-form has been released by MCA for directors to update the KYC. So, for the directors who has already filed the e-form, and no further update is required on their details. Let us learn more about it.
Who needs to file the web-based KYC process?
The new web-based KYC process is required to be filed by only those directors who have already filed the KYC form in the previous year and no further update is required to be filed. It is basically a confirmation of information step, which needs to be filed by logging into the MCA portal.
What if the director needs to update any information?
In that case, the DIR – 3 KYC form is required to be filed. If you are holding 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 is required to be filed.
Once the form is filed, and then the director can confirm their details on this newly introduced web-based portal.
