• Registering as a Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprise (MSME) in India can provide various benefits to businesses, including easier access to credit, priority sector lending, and subsidies. If you have a private limited company and want to register it as an MSME, here are the steps you can follow:

    1. Understand MSME Classification:

    In India, MSMEs are classified based on their investment in plant and machinery or equipment (for manufacturing enterprises) and investment in equipment (for service enterprises). As of my last knowledge update in January 2022, the classification is as follows:

    • Micro Enterprise: Investment up to Rs. 1 crore.
    • Small Enterprise: Investment between Rs. 1 crore and Rs. 10 crore.
    • Medium Enterprise: Investment between Rs. 10 crore and Rs. 50 crore.

    2. Gather Required Information:

    Before initiating the MSME registration process, ensure you have the necessary information, including:

    • Aadhar number of the applicant (Proprietor/Partner/Director).
    • PAN card of the business entity.
    • Details of the business activities.
    • Bank account details of the business.

    3. Visit the Udyam Registration Portal:

    The MSME registration process is now known as Udyam Registration, and it is done through the Udyam Registration portal (https://udyamregistration.gov.in/).

    4. Aadhar Verification:

    Initiate the registration process by providing the Aadhar number of the applicant. An OTP will be sent to the registered mobile number for verification.

    5. Fill in the Registration Form:

    Complete the registration form with details such as business name, type, and PAN details.

    6. Enter Business Details:

    Provide information about the business activities, location, and bank details.

    7. Choose the Classification:

    Select the appropriate classification (Micro, Small, or Medium) based on the investment criteria.

    8. Self-Declaration:

    Complete the self-declaration form affirming the accuracy of the provided information.

    9. Verification and Submission:

    Review the entered information, and if everything is accurate, submit the application.

    10. Generation of Udyam Registration Number:

    Upon successful submission, an acknowledgment with the Udyam Registration Number will be generated.

    11. Download Certificate:

    You can download the Udyam Registration Certificate containing the Udyam Registration Number and other details. This certificate serves as proof of MSME registration.


    • MSME registration is free of cost, and businesses should be cautious of unauthorized entities charging fees for the registration process.
    • As of my last update, the Udyam Registration portal is the official platform for MSME registration. However, it’s advisable to check for any updates or changes in the registration process on the official government portal.

    Remember that government procedures and portals may be updated, so it’s recommended to refer to the latest guidelines and information available on the official Udyam Registration portal or consult with a professional for accurate and up-to-date assistance.
