Even before you start your business, you must be registered with the Ministry of Company Affairs (MCA) as a registered and eligible person to become the director of a company. That is where the above two steps become critical.

· The first step is to obtain Director Identification Number (DIN) for yourself and any other person who wants to be director. First you must obtain the provisional DIN by filing application Form DIN-1 online. The application form must then be printed and signed and sent for approval to the ministry along with proof of identity and address. Upon verification and approval, a permanent DIN is issued. This DIN must be renewed from time to time as per instructions of the MCA.

· The second important step is to get a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC). This is useful for all authorized digital uploads. The digital signature certificate can be obtained from one of six private agencies that are authorized by MCA 21. Company directors must submit the prescribed application form along with proof of identity and address. Normally, an auditor will be able to help you out with this process.
