udyog aadhaar registration


Udyog Aadhaar Registration- Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (“MSME”) has issued a Notification No. S.O 2576(E) dated 18th September 2015 under the MSME Development Act, 2006 and as per the recommendations made by Kamath Committee, the Ministry of MSME, in consultation with the National Board of MSMEs and the Advisory Committee in this behalf. It has been notified that, in order to obtain registration, every MSME unit shall file Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (“UAM”) only and the old procedure which was so intricate has been taken away by the central government.
