What is Udyam Registration?

The idea behind introducing Udyam Registration was to simplify the procedural that business owners had to go through to register their business under Micro Small Medium Enterprise (MSME).

The procedural format was quite hectic and a time-consuming bureaucratic process that used to require handling of lots of paperwork. However, with the introduction of Udyam Registration, things have changed and to some extent, have improved.

If you own a medium, small or micro-enterprise and you haven’t registered your MSME yet, you should know that on registering your MSME via Udyam Registration, you will be liable to enjoy numerous benefits.

Prior to the UAM system, there used to be a former system of EM-I/II (Entrepreneur Memorandum). Under this system, entrepreneurs used to opt for a heterogeneous system.

Some of them used to rely on the national portal, and some of the states had their portal for carrying out MSME registration. Additionally, few of them used to rely on manual paperwork.

Udyam Registration is nothing but a government registration that is provided along with a recognition certificate and a unique number. This is to certify small/medium businesses or enterprises.

The central motive behind the launch of this facility was to offer a way to the government to provide the maximum benefits to medium or small-scale businesses or industries in India, who are registered via MSME through their Aadhar Card Number.

The owner, director, or proprietor of the entity will provide his/her 12-digit Aadhar Number. This is a compulsory guideline whether the enterprise or entity is a sole proprietor, an LLP, a Private limited company, or anything else. It should have the recognition certificate provided via the MSME registration process.

Who can get Registration?

The organizations which are eligible for Udyam Registration are meant to be either in manufacturing, producing, processing or preservation of goods or in providing the services.

In other words, Traders who buy, sell, import, or export the goods are not even eligible for applying for Udyam Registration.

An enterprise shall be classified as a micro, small or medium enterprise on the basis of the following criteria, namely:

➢ a micro enterprise, where the investment in plant and machinery or equipment does not exceed one crore rupees and turnover does not exceed five crore rupees;

➢ a small enterprise, where the investment in plant and machinery or equipment does not exceed ten crore rupees and turnover does not exceed fifty crore rupees; and

➢ a medium enterprise, where the investment in plant and machinery or equipment does not exceed fifty crore rupees and turnover does not exceed two hundred and fifty crore rupees.
