Register a Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise

An individual willing to set up a micro, small or medium enterprise requires filing Udyam Registration online in the Udyam Registration portal, based on self-declaration. It doesn’t require uploading documents, papers, certificates or proof.

After the completion of the online registration procedure, the e-certificate called Udyam Registration Certificate will be issued by the authorities.

What is UDYOG Aadhaar?

Every business in the market, be it small scale or large scale, is allotted Udyog Aadhaar. It is an identity for a business active in the market and registered under MSME. The 12-digit identity number is issued to all small & medium scale enterprises and industries by the MSME Ministry. Every business is thus registered under the MSME category through the unique identification number.
