Dear Anish,

You told you have lost your form 32. Does it mean that you have already filed form 32?

 

If yes, you are already a director in a compnay.

You are asking to start another company(?).

The Same DIN is enough for second company. But you will to file form 32 for new company also.

 

This time please print your form 32.
