DIR-5 (Application for surrender of Director Identification Number) will be deployed as an e-form for filing purposes shortly

Dear Professional Colleagues,

In terms of Rule 11(f) of the Companies (Appointment and Qualification of Directors) Rules, 2014, the Central Government or Regional Director (Northern Region), Noida or any officer authorised by the Regional Director may, upon being satisfied on verification of particulars or documentary proof attached with the application received alongwith fee as specified in Companies (Registration Offices and Fees) Rules, 2014 from any person, cancel or deactivate the DIN in case on an application made in Form DIR-5 by the DIN holder to surrender his or her DIN along with declaration that he has never been appointed as director in any company and the said DIN has never been used for filing of any document with any authority, the Central Government may deactivate such DIN.

The said Form DIR-5 for the application for surrender for Director Identification Number had been an offline form until now.

However, MCA in its recent notice has stated that “DIR-5 (Application for surrender of Director Identification Number) will be deployed as an e-form for filing purposes w.e.f 21st June, 2017. Stakeholders who wish to surrender DINs shall be required to file this e-form instead of it being filed as an attachment to Form RD-1”.
