Form DIR-3 KYC is introduced by Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) to conduct KYC (know your customer) verification for Directors of all companies. It is mandatory for Directors and should be filed by using a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC). By filing DIR-3 KYC form the Director would have to provide a unique personal mobile number and personal email address which would both be verified with an OTP such that it is not already linked with some other person in the DIN holders’ database.
