The Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises has notified the guidelines for online filing of Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (UAM), in exercise of the powers conferred by sub-Section (2) of Section 8 of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Act, 2006. This initiative of my Ministry is a path-breaking step to promote ease-of-doing-business for MSMEs in India as the UAM now replaces the need for filing Entrepreneurs Memorandum (EM Part-I & II).
The existing mechanism for filing EM by a Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise is put in place by respective States and Union Territories (UT). While some of the States/UTs have 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 introduction of filing a single UAM online by enterprises located anywhere in India would end these existing variations in the filing of EM.
