    Udyog Aadhar: What is it, and how can you get one?

    Udyog Aadhar is a Unique Identification Number issued by the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises to the MSMEs. Simply put, it is an identification system for business, similar to the 12-digit Aadhar number. It is also called MSME registration.

    The Government of India (GOI) began the concept of the Udyog Aadhar Certificate. 

    Udyog Aadhar is highly recommended for sole proprietors since it helps them get an official registration with the GOI, which in turn validates their business existence. One of the main objectives of the GOI is to extend the benefits of various government schemes on one platform to the MSMEs besides safeguarding them from financial harassment in the hands of big industries.

    As an MSME, there are numerous benefits that you can avail yourself of through Udyog Aadhar registration.

    • Faster dispute resolution

    • Protection against payment delays

    • Collateral-free loans 

    • Exemption in direct tax

    • Concession in bills like electricity

    • Barcode registration subsidy

    • Subsidy on barcode registration

    • 50% grant on patent registration

    These benefits are significant for MSMEs considering the scale they operate on. They help the MSMEs in accessing capital and thereby enjoying government aid. As an MSME, one can integrate these benefits with lucrative business loans, thereby enjoying significant business improvements. 

    Udyog Aadhar Memorandum

    The registration form certifying the existence of the owner of the Udyog Aadhar Certificate (UAC) is known as Udyog Aadhar Memorandum. This Memorandum entails all the vital information about the UAC owner. It is a self-declaration form; therefore, other supporting documents are not required. However, in extreme cases, the state or the central authorities may ask for additional documents as proof.
