MSME Registration

MSME Registration

MSME stands for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. The MSME registration is a process of obtaining a unique identification number (Udyam Registration) for a business enterprise that falls under the Micro, Small or Medium Enterprise category, as per the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Government of India.

The objective of MSME registration is to promote and support these small-scale businesses, which are considered as the backbone of the Indian economy, by providing various benefits and incentives such as easy access to loans at lower interest rates, government subsidies, and tax benefits. This registration also enables these enterprises to participate in various government schemes and programs that are exclusively designed for MSMEs.

To qualify for MSME registration, a business must meet certain criteria in terms of its investment and turnover, as per the MSMED Act 2006. These criteria vary based on the type of enterprise, i.e. micro, small or medium. Once registered, the enterprise is issued an MSME certificate with a unique Udyam Registration Number (URN), which is valid for a lifetime and needs to be renewed only on upgrading of the enterprise to a higher category.
