Need of the e-form

As you are aware that Registrar of Companies across the India struck off inactive rather non-compliant Companies and disqualified Directors associated with that Companies. Directors associated with these Companies filled several writ petition before various high courts on the ground that opportunity of being heard is not provided to them before taking any action against them.

ROC issued notices to Companies concerned but not informed directors associated with them because ROC doesn't have any database of individual directors. So, as a part of creating database of directors consisting mobile number, email Id and residential address of Directors, MCA issued a new form which is required to be filled every year by every DIN holder.
