Do you need GSTIN for MSME registration on Udyam portal?

GST registration (GSTIN) is not mandatory for MSME Udyam registration.

Only Aadhaar and PAN card are required for MSME registration (and some basic details, email, mobile).

The Udyam portal is linked to the Income Tax and GST portals and can fetch GST data based on PAN details.

As such, if your annual turnover exceeds the minimum GST turnover limit then you need to register for GST.

Current GST registration threshold limit: ₹40 lakhs (for goods) and ₹20 lakhs (for services)* annually

* ₹20 lakhs and ₹10 lakhs respectively  for special category states
