Fetch Director Details API

What is a DIN or DPIN?

Director Identification Number (DIN) is a unique number allotted to any person intending to be a Director or an existing director of a company. Similarly, Designated Partner Identification Number (DPIN) is allocated to designated partners of LLP.

Why Fetch Director Details?

This API allows you to know the period in which a particular Director was associated with an LLP or Company. By knowing this information, you can

  • verify a Director's claims
  • expired Director status or end of directorship of a director has MCA compliance requirements. You can therefore use this API to ask the relevant parties about whether the compliance requirements are met or not.
