The new process of registration of Micro, Small and Medium enterprises has come into the effect by the name of Udyam Registration.  

The MSME ministry also said that an MSME in India will now be called as Udyam as the term is more closer to the meaning of an enterprise. 

To do this registration, filing can be done online based on self-declaration with no documents required other than Aadhar, said the ministry. It is also noteworthy that the Udyam systems have been integrated with IT and GST Systems.

The new definition of MSMEs

  • A micro-enterprise where the investment in plant and machinery or equipment does not exceed 1 crore rupees and turnover does not exceed 5 crore rupees. 
  • A small enterprise as that where the investment in plant and machinery or equipment does not exceed 10 crore rupees and turnover does not exceed 50 crore rupees 
  • A medium enterprise, as one where the investment in plant and machinery or equipment does not exceed 50 crore rupees and turnover does not exceed 250 crore rupees.
