The concept of Director Identification Number (DIN) has been introduced under MCA21 e-Governance Programme. All the existing Directors as well as those intending to be Directors in future are required to apply for allotment of DIN for which a process has already been put in place since 30th January, 2006. A reference to DIN allotted to a Director is a mandatory field in e-filing in respect of certain filings. As such, all Directors should immediately apply for DIN on-line, save the same and take a print-out of the form after the provisional DIN is generated, affix your photograph on the hardcopy, your signatures on page 2 of the form below the undertaking, attach certified copy of any one of the proofs of identity and address (which contain your parentís name and DOB) and then mail the same to the Central DIN Processing Desk at the given address. The application, after receipt by post, will be processed and action taken on approval/ rejection of the DIN allotment request and formally communicated through a letter. Once the DIN is allotted and communicated to the applicant, (s)he is required to inform all the companies, on which (s)he is a Director, about the Director Identification Number allotted to him/her. There is no charge/ fee for this service.
