For easy understanding lets take an example and see what is the date of the Directors Identification Number allotment for the DIN allotted to Mr. Mukesh Ambani, one of the directors of Reliance Industries Limited. The DIN number of Mr. Ambani is 00001695. When you enter the DIN and submit the next it shall show you details of the DIN along with the date on which it was approved. here is the result of the query submitted for the DIN of Mr. Ambani.
In a similar manner, you should check the date of approval of your DIN and in case the DIN is allotted to you on or before 31st March 2019, then filing of DIR-3-KYC is applicable for you. Don’t waste time and file the director KYC well within ist due date, in case you could not file it before 14th October 2019, then file it ASAP with an additional fee as the non-filing of DIR-3 KYC shall result in the deactivation of your DIN.
Note of Surrender of DIN: The director identification number once allotted can be canceled only if the DIN was never used. For the cancelation of DIN, an application is filed in DIR-5 to MCA. Read the Complete Guide on Cancellation or Surrender of DIN

A company or LLP is always registered for a lawful purpose. Now, a question may arise whether it is mandatory to incorporate a company with a name that is representative of its purpose or business activity. Also, can a company have more than one purpose or carry out more than one business activity?
Today (30 September 2019) is the last date of filing the Director KYC of the company. The servers of the MCA are not working properly, in fact, yesterday the forms were not uploading to the MCA Website. The need for a due date extension for the director KYC is felt all over India. We are receiving calls from all over India, asking whether the Director KYC date extended or not. There are many states in India which flooded and the professionals of those areas are in a serious problem. The severity of the problem can be appreciated by undertaking the adverse consequences of the non-filing of the Form DIR-3 KYC within its due date. The non-filing of the director’s KYC results in instant deactivation of the Director Identification Number (DIN), which can be reactivated by filing the DIR-3 KYC Form with the enhanced government filing fee of Rs. 5000 for each director.
