Call Us Today +91 80000 57972

It is critical for holders of Director Identification Numbers who have never been a Director in any Company or Designated Partner in any LLP and have no plans to do so in the future to surrender their DIN. To surrender their DIN, the holder must fill out Form DIR-5, along with a declaration that they have never been appointed as a director in any company and the said DIN has never been used to file any documents with any authority. The government will verify the e-records before deactivating any DIN in such a case. Therefore, it can be deduced that if a person held a directorship in any company during their life using that DIN, it cannot be surrendered by filing an E-form DIR-5.
