Understanding MSME Registration


The government of India introduced MSMED Act in 2006 in order to promote competitiveness, productivity, and innovation among the micro, small, and medium-sized businesses. The prescribed government organization offers an abundance of benefits in form of incentives to all MSMEs registered under the corporation. MSME Registered entities enjoy advantages such as power tariff subsidies, capital investment subsidies, exemption from excise and direct taxes, and many others. These enterprises also get an additional benefit of priority sector lending.

As per MSMED Act guidelines, an entity serving in the manufacturing sector or service sector can claim for MSME certification only if investment shelf (distinct for every enterprise) is not exceeded. Another point worth noting is that MSME Registration is not lawfully essential rather it is a voluntarily taken decision to enjoy a range of subsidies and schemes offered by the Indian government.

Also, Government of India has defined and considered MSME / Small Scale Industries (SSI) / Udyog AADHAAR to be the same type of registrations for micro, small, or medium enterprises.
