Every business whether small or large needs to be registered to attain the benefits from
government. Udyog Adhaar registration is for the Micro, Small, Medium Enterprises(MSME)
sector in our country which gives the business a unique 12-digit identification number. Micro,
Small, Medium Enterprises(MSME) sector has emerged as a highly vibrant and dynamic sector
and has improved in the last five years. MSMEs plays a vital role in providing large
employment opportunities at comparatively lower capital cost than large industries and also
helps in industrialization of rural & backward areas, thereby, reducing regional imbalances,
assuring more equitable distribution of national income and wealth. 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.

In accordance with the provision of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises Development
(MSMED) Act, 2006 the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) are classified in two
Classes: (a) Manufacturing Enterprises, (b) Service Enterprises

Earlier to Udyog Adhaar Registration, the registration for Micro, Small and Medium
Enterprises (MSME) involved the filing of Entrepreneurs Memorandum Part I and II for
proposed and existing enterprises respectively. Filing of EM-I was discretionary in nature.
However, MSMEs file EM-II at District Industries Centres (DICs) in respective States/UTs,
after commencement of the project where the rules were different from each state.

Report of Kamath Committee on Financial Architecture of MSME sector dealt with

universalization of registration process as the major issue lies not with the registration process
as per the MSMED Act, 2006 but with the conditions applied by the local DICs. There are
localized rules and requirements which could vary even from district to district within the same
state, which may result in delays in receiving the EM II acknowledgement. The committee
recommended a simple one-page registration form for MSMEs with a simplified set of
information and documents called as Udyog Adhaar Memorandum.
