Enterprise Registration Simplified for MSMEs from 1st July

Starting from 1st July, enterprises can register themselves based on Aadhaar number alone. This is as per the new norms notified by the Government on 26th June 2020.   The enterprises are no longer required to upload certificates and documents for registering online. They can provide these details with a self-declaration. This new process is named as “Udyam Registration” and is made possible after the successful integration of the registration process with those of GST and Income Tax. The details provided in the self-declaration will be duly verified by the authorities based on GSTIN and PAN. Those who do not have Aadhaar can approach the Single Window Systems along with their identity proof for Aadhaar enrollment request, bank passbook copy, voter ID card, driving license, or passport. The Single Window Systems will facilitate registration after receiving the Aadhaar number.

Udyog Aadhaar Registration is the new initiative of the Government to support small-scale businesses. Indeed the process of Udyog Aadhaar Registration has come as a replacement to the SSI Registration or/and MSME Registration.

Moreover, the business entities and industries that enroll themselves and register under the Udyog Aadhaar scheme are entitled to a wide range of benefits and entitlements under various government schemes such as subsidies, easy loan approvals, etc.
