      Along with the e-Form DIR – 5; e-Form – RD1 and e-Form – GNL1 will also have to be filed. This is owing to the fact that as per Section 153 and 441 of the Companies Act 2013 read with Rule 11 of the Companies (Appointment and Qualification of Directors) Rules, 2014, it is prescribed that along with DIR -5 (The relevant form for surrender of DIN), RD1 and GNL1 are also necessary to be filed.
