What Is Udyog Aadhar?

The question that attracts every entrepreneurs attention is “what is UdyogAadhar?”. Udyog Aadhar is the government registration of any business entity for a 12 Digit unique number along with a recognition certificate in order to certify small/medium businesses or enterprises after complying with MSME registration.

This brainchild has been developed by the Governement of India(GOI) in order to simplify the procedural format that business owners had to go through in order to register their business under Micro Small Medium Enterprise or MSME.

Prior to the introduction of the UAM (Udyog Aadhar Memorandum) system, there existed a former system of EM-I/II (Entrepreneur Memorandum).
