The ministry of micro, small, medium enterprises (MSME) launched a new program called Udyog Aadhaar, this program was inspired by Prime Minister’s Radio Show “Mann Ki Baat”, where he had expressed about how to make the process simple to setup a new business with single page registration form.
A mass amount of enterprises in India don’t register their business due to burdensome paperwork involved in the registration process, and hence they can’t take benefit of government schemes. The Idea of Udyog Aadhaar and the simplification of registration process have thus ensured wider coverage of MSMEs to avail the benefits under various Schemes of Central/ State governments.
On registration at Udyog Aadhaar Portal a 12 digit registration number will be issued by Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) to new small and medium enterprises or the existing ones. This initiative of one page Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (UAM) has simplified the former lengthy and complicated process of filing for MSME registration where the small and medium enterprises had to fill Entrepreneur Memorandum –I (EM-I) and Entrepreneur Memorandum –II (EM-II) forms which used consist 11 different forms along with the necessary attested certificates.
