Sub.: New Process of MSME Registration takes off in the name of Udyam Registration from 1st July, 2020 as planned earlier


Dear Member,


The Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME), had earlier issued Notification dated 26th June, 2020 informing about the new process of Classification and Registration of enterprises to be starting from 1st July, 2020. In this regard, through a Press Release dated 30th June, the Ministry of MSME has informed the take off of the New Process of MSME Registration on the date as planned earlier i.e.1st July, 2020.


An enterprise registering for this purpose will be known as Udyam and its Registration Process will be known as 'Udyam Registration'. The new portal for Udyam Registration www.udyamregistration.gov.in has been launched by the MSME Ministry in this regard. The portal guides the entrepreneurs step by step as to what they should know, what they should do.


Highlights of this process are as follows:

  • MSME registration process is fully online, paperless and based on self-declaration. No documents or proof are required to be uploaded for registering an MSME;

  • Adhaar Number will be required for registration;

  • A Registration number will be given after registration;

  • After completion of the process of registration, an Udyam Registration Certificate will be issued; 

  • This certificate will have a dynamic QR Code from which the web page on our Portal and details about the enterprise can be accessed;

  • There will be no need for renewal of Registration;

  • PAN & GST linked details on investment and turnover of enterprises will be taken automatically from the respective Government databases;

  • MSME Ministry's  online system will be fully integrated with Income Tax and GSTIN systems;

  • Those who have EM-II or UAM registration or any other registration issued by any authority under the Ministry of MSME, will also have to re-register themselves;

  • No enterprise is supposed to file more than one Udyam Registration. However, any number of activities including manufacturing or service or both may be specified or added in one Registration;

  • Government 's Facilitation mechanism in the name of single window systems at Champions Control Rooms and at DICs will help people in this process;

  • Registration Process is totally free. No Costs or Fees are to be paid in this regard.


According to the Ministry, the Udyam and its Registration Process will be extremely simple,  seamless entrepreneur-friendly. It will set an example in Ease of Doing Business, not only in India but internationally. It will reduce transaction time and costs. Entrepreneurs and Enterprises can focus on their real work and become globally competitive.


At the same time, looking to some private websites projecting as Government website,  Ministry has clarified that except this portal of Government of India (www.udyamregistration.gov.in) and Government's Single Window Facilitation Systems, no other private online or offline system, service, agency or person is authorized or entitled to do MSME Registration or undertake any activity related with that process.


Members may kindly make a note of the above and act accordingly at the earliest.


Thanking you,


Yours faithfully,
