As per Rules, every person holding DIN have to file e-form DIR-3 KYC, irrespective whether such person having directorship in any company or not.

Therefore, we can opine that directorship is not any base for filing of DIR-3 KYC; Base for the same is DIN. If person having DIN its mandatory to file DIR-3 KYC.

   B.    If a person is designated partner in LLP, whether such person is required to file DIR-3 KYC?

As we discussed in above question, that DIR-3 KYC is DIN based.
Therefore, if a person is designated partner in LLP such person must have DIN. As such person having DIN it is mandatory for him/ her to file DIR- 3 KYC.

   C.   If a professional CA/CS/CWA having DIN. Whether he himself can affix his Digital Signature in the capacity of DIN holder as well Professional?

As per e-form DIR-3 KYC professional have to certify the following things:
·         I declare that I have been duly engaged for the purpose of certification/verification of this form.
·         I have satisfied myself about the identity of the applicant
Practically, a person can’t work in 2 capacities simultaneously and a person can’t engage himself for verification of his details and documents. Therefore, one can opine that form DIR 3 KYC should be digitally signed by 2 different persons. 

   D.   What are the mandatory attachments for DIR-3 KYC (for person other than foreign national)?

·         Copy of PAN Card, if any
·         Permanent Resident Address-                                                                            Aadhar Card

Passport is mandatory for the Foreign National Person.
However, if an Indian person having passport in such case it is mandatory to mention passport No. (As the column no. 11 is star marked and confirming whether such person having passport or not). If such person not having passport then not required.

   H.   Whether mobile no. of foreign person is mandatoyr, or whether OTP will be generated on foreign contact no.?

In form 3-4 places it is mentioned that person email id of person required to be mention. However, a person can be dfirector upto 20 companies and form is required to file only for DIN one time in a year.
Therefore, one can opine that such individual have to mention his personal email ID instead of official emai id.

However it is no where mentioned in the form or rules. But as per the past practice one can opine that ID proofs of foreign DIN holders are required to be appostile and notarized as per their country law and treaty of India with them.
