Integration of Director’s Identification Number (DIN) issued under Companies Act, 1956 with Designated Partnership Identification Number (DPIN) issued under Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) Act, 2008

The Ministry of Corporate Affairs has been issuing two separate identification numbers as DIN to an individual for becoming a director of a company under Companies Act, 1956 and DPIN for a designated partner in a Limited Liability Partnership under Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) Act,2008.

To avoid this duplicity and to give ease to the stakeholders, the Ministry has decided to issue only one identification number to an individual for both the purpose.

Moreover, from 31st May, 2011 the MCA has Ministry has already made Income Tax Permanent Account Number (PAN) mandatory for obtaining DIN for Indian nationals. Further, all existing DIN holders, who have not furnished their PAN at the time of obtaining DIN, are required to furnish their PAN to the Ministry by filing e-form DIN-4 by 30th September, 2011.

Similarly, all DPIN holders, who had not furnished their PAN at the time of obtaining DPIN, are required to furnish their PAN to the Ministry by filing e-form DIN-4 by 30th September, 2011, failing which their DPIN/DIN will be disabled and they will also be liable for heavy penalty.
