Udyog Aadhaar Registration: In a bid to give a boost to small businesses i.e. SMEs and MSMEs in the nation, the 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. Now, you need to fill only 2 forms: Entrepreneur Memorandum-I and Entrepreneur Memorandum-II instead of 11 different types of forms that were required earlier. The Udyog Aadhar Registration is a completely online process, which is totally free of cost. Industries registered with Udyog Aadhar become entitled to receive the benefits of several government schemes such as subsidies, easy loan approvals etc.
