Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (UAM)


Ajit Kumar AJIT KUMARWISDOM IAS, New Delhi.

The Union Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in September-2015 under the MSME Development Act, 2006 has notified that every MSME unit shall file  Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (UAM). This is a path breaking step to promote ease-of-doing-business for MSMEs in India as the UAM replaces the filing of Entrepreneurs’ Memorandum (EM) with the respective States/UTs. While some of the States/UTs had made the process online, either by themselves or through the portal created by this Ministry, several States/ UTs were still relying on the manual way of filing EM. The cumbersome filing of EM has now been dispensed with and the entrepreneurs in the MSME sector just need to file online, a simple one-page UAM on http://udyogaadhaar.gov.in to instantly get a unique Udyog Aadhaar Number (UAN). The information sought is on self-certification basis and no supporting documents are required at the time of online filing of UAM.

The UAM can be filed online by individuals themselves in case they have an Aadhaar Number.  
It is expected that this simplified one-page memorandum to be filed online shall unlock the potential of MSMEs, besides improving our international ranking in Doing Business Index. Within a short time of three months, more than 95,650 UAMs have been filed in the country.
