Udyog Aadhar or Aadhar for business is a 12-digit Unique Identification Number provided by the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises and Government of India to small and medium enterprises on registration of their business. To boost small-scale businesses, Government of India has initiated the Udyog Aadhaar Registration process. Earlier, if you wished to start a business and get SSI registration or MSME registration, you needed to go through a lot of paperwork which was really time consuming. However, with the introduction of Udyam Registration, things have changed and to some extent, have improved for medium, small, and micro-enterprises. Industries registered with Udyog Aadhar become entitled to receive the benefits of several government schemes such as subsidies, easy loan approvals etc.
