Who is eligible for Udyog Aadhar?

Udyog Aadhar was a registration provided to micro, small, and medium-sized businesses in India under the Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprise Development Act, 2006 (MSMED). Since July 2020, Udyog Aadhaar registration has become Udyam registration. Udyam Registration is more accessible than registration for Udyog Aadhaar.   

Udyog Aadhar Registration for MSME

The Ministry of MSME has notified a one-page Udyog Aadhar Memorandum (UAM) through the Gazette of India on 18.09.2015 as part of an initiative to ease the Registration of MSMEs.

The process for obtaining MSME registration has been simplified by introducing the Udyog Aadhar for MSME in India. Before the Udyog Aadhaar, two filings, namely Entrepreneur Memorandum-I (EM-I) and Entrepreneur Memorandum-II (EM-II), had to be filed to obtain MSME or SSI Registration. With Udyog Aadhaar, obtaining SSI or MSME registration has been drastically simplified.  

In addition to simplifying the registration process, the MSME registration form has also been simplified. Udyog Aadhaar registration form was made in a self-declaration format under which the MSME self-certifies its existence, bank account details, promoter/owners’ Aadhar, and other essential information required. Based on the simple form submitted, the business would be issued online, at a minimum, a unique identifier or Udyog Aadhaar, making the unit formally registered as an SSI or MSME.
