How to Apply For DIN

The concept of a Director Identification Number (DIN) has been introduced for the first time with the insertion of Sections 266A to 266G of Companies (Amendment) Act, 2006. All the existing and intending Directors have to obtain DIN within the prescribed time-frame as notified.


SPICe Form:

Any person (not having DIN) proposed to become a first director in a new company shall have to make an application through eForm SPICe. The applicant is required to attach the proof of Identity and address along with the application. DIN would be allocated to User only after approval of the form.

DIR-3 Form:

Any person intending to become a director in an existing company shall have to make an application in eForm DIR-3 and should follow the following procedure:

  • 1 Supporting Documents:

Attach the photograph and scanned copy of supporting documents. i.e. proof of identity, and proof of residence as per the guidelines.
Physical documents are not required to be submitted at DIN cell.

  • 2 Digital Signature

Form DIR-3 is mandatory to be signed by the Applicant and shall be verified digitally by a Company Secretary in full time employment of the company or by the Managing Director or Director or CEO or CFO of the existing company in which the applicant is intended to be appointed as a director.


  • 3 Fee Payment

Upon upload, make the payment of filing fee of eForm DIR-3. Only electronic payment of the fees shall be allowed (i.e. Net banking / Credit Card/Debit Card/Pay later/ NeFT).

The user is required to get himself / herself registered on the MCA21 Portal to obtain Login ID. Login to the MCA21 portal and click on 'eForm upload' link available under the 'eForms' tab for uploading the eForm DIR- 3.

eForm DIR-3 will be processed only after the DIN application fee is paid.

  • 4 Generation of DIN

Upon upload and successful payment, in case Form DIR-3 details have not been identified as potential duplicate, Approved DIN shall be generated and if the details have been identified as potential duplicate, Provisional DIN shall be generated.

  • 5 Verification of e Form:

In case, details of eForm DIR-3 are found as potential duplicate, the same gets routed to DIN cell for back office processing. Upon approval of the form, provisional DIN becomes approved DIN and would be available for further use.

  • 6 Common Causes of Rejection:

A provisional DIN is approved only after scrutiny of the documents attached with the application.

Some of the common mistakes committed by applicants and on account of which the DIN application gets rejected are as under:

•The proof of father's name of the applicant is not submitted.

•The proof of date of birth of the applicant is not submitted.

DIR-6 Form:

For instance, in the event of change of address of a director, he/she is required to intimate this change by submitting e-form DIR-6 along with the required attested document.

Digital Signature:

  • The e-Form DIR-6 is required to be digitally signed by the Applicant and further certified by a Chartered Accountant or a Company Secretary or a Cost Accountant in whole- time practice or company secretary (member of ICSI)/Director of existing company in which applicant is proposed to be the director.
