24 Benefits of Obtaining Udyam Registration for MSMEs – Professional Utilities


Formally, MSMEs were defined in terms of investment in plants and machinery. But this criterion for the definition was long criticized because credible and precise details of investments were not easily available by authorities. Therefore in February 2018, the Union Cabinet decided to change the criterion to “annual turnover”, which was more in line with the imposition of GST.

The Central Government, after obtaining the recommendations of the Advisory Committee, had notified certain criteria for classifying the enterprises as micro, small and medium enterprises and had specified the form and procedure for filing the memorandum (Udyam Registration), with effect from 1st July 2020.
