Company and every officer of the company who is in default or such other person shall be punishable with fine which may extend to Rs. 10,000/- and where the contravention is continuing one, with a further fine which may extend to Rs. 1,000/- for every day after the first during which the contravention continues.
Sec.158 of Companies Act 2013 (effective from 1.4.2014) which is corresponding to Sec.266F of CA 1956 reads as under: "Every person or company, while furnishing any return, information or particulars as are required to be furnished under this Act, shall mention the Director Identification Number in such return, information or particulars in case such return, information or particulars relate to the director or contain any reference of any director." Hence now we will have to mention DIN with the names of directors at all applicable places e.g. various returns, registers, minutes, annual report, letters to ROC, all documents to be filed with ROC, petitions to be filed with CLB/RD etc.
