MCA has changed the procedure to obtain DIN number.
Now you need to have a company which is going to appoint you as director, unless you are going to be a director in a company you cannot obtain DIN.
Earlier you could get DIN even if you were not supposed to be a director. But under new rules you need an existing company.
There are 2 options to get DIN:
- You are promoter of a new company and incorporating the company. You can apply for DIN in Spice form.
- An existing company has offered you directorship.
Under first option a person can get DIN by applying in SPICE form.
Under second option person need to fill form DIR-3.
Documents required to obtain DIN are:
- Address proof
Form DIR-3 should be signed using DSC by applicant and Director/CEO/CS/CFO of existing company offering you directorship.
