What is UDYOG Aadhaar?

Udyog Aadhar is also known as Aadhar for Business. It is a unique 12 digit Government identification number issued by the Ministry of MSME for all small and medium enterprises and small scale industries. These business entities are registered through this process as MSME with their Aadhar Card Number.

Difference between Udyog Aadhaar, MSME & SSI

Before, Udyog Aadhar used to be referred to as MSME registration. Now, the whole process of obtaining MSME registration is converted to Udyog Aadhar registration.

For the convenience of Micro & Small Enterprises (MSEs), we have now integrated the https://samadhaan.msme.gov.in/MyMsme/MSEFC/MSEFC_Welcome.aspx portal with the `Information Utility (IU)’ of National e-Governance Services Ltd. (NeSL) enabling following steps.

MSEs, while registering a complaint on Samadhaan Portal, may give their consent to share their outstanding or unpaid invoices details on the NeSL IU.

The NeSL will send a link to those MSEs for logging into NeSL-IU and puffing their respective digital signatures attesting the information on the Samadhaan.

The NeSL will upload the copy of unpaid invoices and put pressure on the companies to make the payments. Once MSEs give their consent, the communication/information could then be shared to the other lenders like Banks, NBFCs, rating agencies and other MSMEs concerning the defaulting buyers as a means to create pressure on them for clearance of the outstanding payments. For any clarification, MSMEs may write to NeSL on helpdesk@nesl.co.in or call on 1800 599 2345 or visit www.nesl.co.in.
