Anyone who is a Director of a Company or Partner of a LLP is required to have a valid Director Identification Number (DIN) or Designated Partner Identification Number (DPIN). DIN is a unique number, and is mandatory requirement for a company/ limited liability partnership (LLP) for filing certain eForms. All Directors or Partners of LLP having an approved DIN are mandatory to intimate to MCA any changes to address or other details mentioned in DIN within a period of 30 days of such change.
Form DIR-6 will file with the MCA to intimate of any changes to particulars stated in DIN. In many cases, Form DIR-6 is used to change the name of the applicant after marriage. In such cases, the details of PAN must first be changed before filing DIR-6, as the form validates the input from the PAN database.
