The Indian government has always been in favor of providing benefits to Micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs). There are many advantages of obtaining MSME registration in India, which can be only availed if the business had registered itself as an MSME/SSI under MSME Act. The following are a few advantages or obtaining SSI/MSME registration in India:

What Are The Benefits of Msme Registration In India

1. Bank Loans (Collateral Free)

The Government of India has made collateral-free credit available to all small and micro business sectors. This initiative guarantees funds to micro and small sector enterprises. Under this scheme, both the old as well as the new enterprises can claim the benefits. A trust named The Credit Guarantee Trust Fund Scheme was introduced by the GOI(Government Of India), SIDBI(Small Industries Development Bank Of India) and the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise to make sure this scheme is implemented (Credit Guarantee Scheme) for all Micro and Small Enterprise.

2. Subsidy on Patent Registration

A hefty 50% subsidy is given to the Enterprise that has the certificate of registration granted by MSME. This subsidy can be availed for patent registration by giving application to respective ministry.

3. Overdraft Interest Rate Exemption

Businesses or enterprises registered under MSME can avail a benefit of 1% on the Over Draft as mentioned in a scheme that differs from bank to bank.

4. Industrial Promotion Subsidy Eligibility

Enterprises registered under MSME are also eligible for a subsidy for Industrial Promotion as suggested by the Government.

5. Protection against Payments (Delayed Payments)

At times, the buyers of services or products from the MSME’s or SSIs tend to delay the payment. The Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise lend a helping hand to such enterprises by giving them the right to collect interest on the payments that are delayed from the buyer’s side. The settlement of such disputes must be done in minimum time through conciliation and arbitration.

In case, if any MSME registered enterprise supplies any goods or services to a buyer then the buyer is required to make the payment on or before the agreed date of payment or within 15 days from the day they had accepted the goods and services from MSME or SCI registered business( if there is no mention of the date of payment).

If the buyer delays the payment for more than 45 days after accepting the products or services then the buyer has to pay compound interest along with interests (monthly) on the amount that was agreed to be paid. The interest rate is three times the rate that is notified by the Reserve Bank of India.

6. Fewer Electricity Bills

This concession is available to all the Enterprises that have the MSME Registration Certificate by providing an application to the department of the electricity along with the certificate of registration by MSME.

7. ISO Certification Charges Reimbursement

The registered MSME enterprises can claim the reimbursement of the expenses that were spent for the ISO certification.


MSME’s are rapidly growing with regular support from the government and youths who are inspired and bold enough to start their own venture. Therefore, knowledge about the registration process and its benefits is an absolute must in order to give a boost to the entrepreneurial spirit of MSME & SSI founders.

    Protection against delayed payment is available only for micro and small enterprises. Medium enterprise is not covered as the definition of Supplier, Section 2(n) covers only micro and small enterprises.

    Please let me know if your thoughts differ….

    Just read your article, very informative indeed.
    I did however have a few more questions.

    1. Is this for new companies/firms only or already functioning small businesses can avail this service too? I am a part of my trade for quite a few years now.
    2. About help with delayed payments, can we use this service for payments delayed after the MSME registration only or can it be used for older delayed payments too?

    Thanks and Regards.
