Udyog Aadhaar

This topic provides information about Udyog Aadhaar - a National Portal for Registration of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises


This Video Explains About registration process on MSME unit registration (Udyog Aadhaar)


Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) sector has emerged as a highly vibrant and dynamic sector of the Indian economy over the last five decades. MSMEs not only play crucial role in providing large employment opportunities at comparatively lower capital cost than large industries but also help in industrialization of rural & backward areas, thereby, reducing regional imbalances, assuring more equitable distribution of national income and wealth.

The primary responsibility of promotion and development of MSMEs is of the State Governments. However, the Government of India, supplements efforts of the State Governments through various initiatives. The role of the M/o MSME and its organizations is to assist the States in their efforts to encourage entrepreneurship, employment and livelihood opportunities and enhance the competitiveness of MSMEs in the changed economic scenario.

The Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development (MSMED) Act was notified in 2006 to address policy issues affecting MSMEs as well as the coverage and investment ceiling of the sector. As per MSME Act of 2006, all enterprises are expected to register with District Industries Centre (DIC) of their area and file Entrepreneurs Memorandum (EM) 1 for intention to start business if manufacturing or service and file EM 2 after starting production.

A large chunk of enterprises in India are simply not registered due to the cumbersome paperwork involved in the process and, therefore, can't tap the government schemes for them. The Ministry for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises had in September 2015 notified Udyog Aadhaar  to ensure ease of registration and wider coverage of MSMEs to avail the benefits under various Schemes of Central/ State governments. Hence, at present, filing of EM-I has been abolished. Udyog Aadhaar (UA) has been introduced for running units. No need to apply for upcoming units. Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (UAM) can be filled online on the portal created by Ministry of MSME i.e. http://udyogaadhaar.gov.in.

Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (UAM)

UAM is a one-page registration form which constitutes a self-declaration format under which the MSME will self-certify its existence, bank account details, promoter/owner’s Aadhaar details and other minimum information required. There shall be no fee for filing the Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum. On submission of the form, Udyog Aadhaar Acknowledgement shall be generated and mailed to the email address provided in the Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum which shall contain unique Udyog Aadhaar Number  (UAN).

Existing enterprises, which have filed Entrepreneurship Memorandum-I or Entrepreneurship Memorandum-II or both, or the holders of Small Scale Industry registration, prior to the coming into force of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Act, 2006 (27 of 2006) shall not be required to file Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum, but if they so desire, they may also file the Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum. There is no restriction on filing more than one Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum using the same Aadhaar Number.

The Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum is filed on self-declaration basis, and no supporting document is required to be uploaded or submitted while filing the Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum, but the Central Government or the State Government or such person as may be authorized in this behalf may seek documentary proof of information provided in the Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum, wherever necessary.
