Difference between Udyam registration and Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum

Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (UAM) is the old process of MSME registration. UAM was replaced by the Udyam registration in July 2020. The Government of India introduced Udyam registration to make it easier for MSMEs to register with the government portal.

“Those who have EM-II or UAM registration or any other registration issued by any authority under the Ministry of MSME, will have to re-register themselves,” according to the Udyam registration portal. This means that if you currently hold an Udyog Aadhaar registration you must visit the Udyam registration portal and register your company again.

Here are the main differences between Udyam registration and Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum:

  • Registration number

“No enterprise shall file more than one Udyam Registration. However, any number of activities including manufacturing or service, or both may be specified and added in one registration,” states the Udyam registration portal.

This means that Udyam registration can be applied for only by a single person with a single Aadhaar card. She/he can add multiple business activities in the same registration form. However, under the UAM facility, a single person can register for Udyog Aadhaar several times under different corporate names.

  • Registration form

The Udyam registration portal asks businesses to fill in a longer application form requiring details of income tax and GST. Udyog Aadhaar on the other hand features a one-page form.

  • Documents requirement

Udyog Aadhaar application only requires the applicant’s Aadhaar card and PAN number, and it provides instant self-certification as per old MSME criteria. In contrast, Udyam Registration only requires the applicant’s Aadhaar card and provides verified certification per new MSME criteria.

  • Integration with government portals

Udyam registration is fully integrated with online MSME platforms like GeM portal and income tax and GSTIN systems. While Udyog Aadhaar has no integration with government portals.

Udyog Aadhaar verification will be soon irrelevant as it expired on June 30, 2022. If you have a UAM number, you should re-register yourselves under Udyam registration.

Visit the homepage of Udyam registration portal. You will be able to find an option “For those already having registration as UAM” indicated right below the title labelled “MSME/Udyam Registration Process” indicated on the homepage.
