The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (“MCA”) has recently deployed an e-format of DIR-5 [Application for surrender of Director Identification Number] for filing purposes. The e- Form DIR-5 is effective from 21st June, 2017.
Therefore, stakeholders intending to surrender their DINs are required to file e-Form DIR- 5 instead of filing it as an attachment to Form RD-1 [Applications made to Regional Director].
The e-Form DIR-5 has been enclosed with this e-mail for your reference.
