MSME Databank Registration and Eligibility Criteria

Updated on:  

08 min read

MSME is an abbreviation for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. In a country like ours, the MSME sector is relatively significant in the sense that it is second to agriculture in terms of providing employment. The MSME Databank is a comprehensive database of all the MSMEs in India. It is mandatory for all MSMEs to provide information regarding the business to the government through the means of the MSME Databank. – Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum – Eligibility Criteria for MSME Databank – Registration Procedure

Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (UAM)

The UAM registration form is a single-page form, the purpose of which is to self-certify the existence of your business entity. The basic details of your business, your bank details, the owner/promoter’s Aadhaar details, and other related details need to be entered in and submitted. There is no fee to be paid for the UAM registration.

Once the form is submitted, an acknowledgement will come to the registered email address via an email, containing the UAN. Udyog Aadhaar Number (UAN) is a unique 12 digit number, an identification number generated by the Ministry of MSME for businesses to register themselves as MSMEs. It is essentially an Aadhaar for Businesses. Having a Udyog Aadhaar number saves businesses from a lot of procedural hassle that they would otherwise have to experience if they were undergoing the MSME registration process.

Eligibility Criteria for MSME Databank

There are two prerequisites to be complied with in order to be eligible for the MSME Databank registration:-

Udyog Aadhar Number: (Where the Udyog Aadhaar number is that of the North East region, the registered mobile number with the Udyog Aadhaar becomes mandatory)

PAN:
1. In the case of corporates such as companies and LLPs, the PAN of such company or LLP must be mandatorily entered in the form.
2. Where it is a non-corporate such as a sole proprietorship, the PAN of the proprietor may be entered in the form. So, any business entity having a PAN card and a Udyog Aadhaar Number or any promoter/person having a PAN Card and an Aadhaar Number is eligible to register their business with the MSME Databank.
