Ok, third time lucky, I'll try again.

Can anybody guide me or advise me how to apply for Director Identification Number whilst I am in the UK, or even if it is possible?

I am busy with a project in London but while I am here in the UK I would like to apply for my D.I.N in India and join an Indian PLC I have been invited to join as director.

If anyone can advise how to apply for a D.I.N in India whilst in the UK, any sensible advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
( please note, only serious discussion is requested please, no funny remarks or jokes requsted please. )

You can do it yourself.

Use the Indian High Commission's Consular services though their UK agent's (VFS) website:

Haha! This is very funny.

You'll have to run the gauntlet of the preliminary pop-up at the portal of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India:

Swachhata (cleanliness) Pledge

Mahatma Gandhi dreamt of an India which was not only free but also clean and developed. Mahatma Gandhi secured freedom for Mother India. Now it is our duty to serve Mother India by keeping the country neat and clean. I take this pledge that I will remain committed towards cleanliness and devote time for this. I will devote 100 hours per year that is two hours per week to voluntary work for cleanliness. I will neither litter nor let others litter. I will initiate the quest for cleanliness with myself, my family, my locality, my village and my work place. I believe that the countries of the world that appear clean are so because their citizens don't indulge in littering nor do they allow it to happen. With this firm belief, I will propagate the message of Swachh Bharat Mission in villages and towns. I will encourage 100 other persons to take this pledge which I am taking today. I will endeavour to make them devote their 100 hours for cleanliness. I am confident that every step I take towards cleanliness will help in making my country clean.

I closed the page without accepting this drivel. You don't have the option of not accepting this pledge if you want to continue with your D.I.N. application!!!

Welcome to India!

Thank you. Very much appreciated ViShVa.

The above information will help me direct and request the correct letters and information from the chartered accountant in Trivandrum and apply from the UK.

I shall log onto the MCA website and see if they can process my UK bank information to the Indian Registered PLC Company.

I would gladly take that pledge. lol

Many thanks,

Cheers, Alex.

As a citizen of the country, I, therefore, pledge:

- To neither take nor offer bribe;
- To perform all tasks in an honest and transparent manner and be accountable to all my actions;
- To take decisions objectively and impartially;
- To act in public interest;
- To lead by example exhibiting integrity in personal behaviour;
- To report any incident of corruption to the appropriate agency.

INTEGRITY PLEDGE


We believe that corruption has been one of the major obstacles to economic, political and social progress of our country. We believe that all stakeholders such as government, citizens and the private sector, need to work together to eradicate corruption. We acknowledge our responsibility to lead by example and the need to put in place safeguards, integrity frameworks and code of ethics to ensure that we are not part of any corrupt practice and we tackle instances of corruption with utmost strictness. We realize that as an Organisation, we need to lead from the front in eradicating corruption and in maintaining highest standards of integrity, transparency and good governance in all aspects of our operations.
We, therefore, pledge that :-
- We shall promote ethical business practices and foster a culture of honesty and integrity;

I'd happily subscribe to that. No drivel here!
