From July 2020, the Union Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises introduced a new mechanism to register and classify MSMEs. Known as Udyam registration, it lets new and existing businesses register themselves on the MSME portal.
Following is the classification of such ventures as per the latest guidelines:

Details about the registration process
Any individual planning to start a micro, small or medium enterprise may apply for Udyam registration in the scheme’s official portal. You don’t have to upload any document, the entire process will be based on your self-declaration. Upon registration, the individual is given an identification number. This will be called Udyam registration number. This number is permanent. Upon completion of the process, the applicant receives a virtual certification known as Udyam registration certificate.
All units that have GSTIN (Goods and Services Tax Identification Number) given against one PAN number will be treated as one. The investment and turnover of such units are calculated as the average of all of them.
Your self-declaration is valid only till the 31st of March 2021. From that day, GSTIN is a must.
Udyam registration form is available on its official portal. There is no registration fee for the process. Aadhaar number is a must here. You may do as per the instructions you receive on the portal in this regard. If the venture is a limited liability partnership, trust or a society, it should furnish the details of the authorized dignitary’s Aadhaar and GSTIN.
If the venture registers itself along with the PAN number, a self-declaration will compensate for insufficient information.
No venture is allowed to have more than one Udyam registration.
Any venture that misrepresents information offered in the self-declaration is liable for the penalties given in Section 27 of the MSMED Act. All ventures that are registered with EM–Part-II or UAM are required to have Udyam registration on or after July 1st.
