DIN will replace DPIN:
Earlier we had a burden of applying of DPIN in spite you have DIN. now it is replaced with DIN number. If you have DIN number you needn’t apply for DPIN. DIN will replace the DPIN requirement. if some one already has DIN and DPIN both DPIN will get cancelled and DIN will replace their DPIN .
