In 2020, under the Atma Nirbhar Bharat Package, a new revised MSME definition was announced with the aim of bringing more enterprises under the new scheme. On July 1, 2020, the Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprise launched a new process for registering MSMEs under the name of Udyam registration. Any company or enterprise registered under this scheme is called an Udyam. Once the registration is completed, the company is allotted a permanent registration number. Udyam registration is the replacement of the previous method of Udyog Aadhaar which was lengthy for the enterprises. Under Udyog Aadhaar, the enterprise had to undergo several categories and documentation processes involving a lot of paperwork. With Udyam registration all the drawbacks of Udyog Aadhaar were eliminated.

Udyam registration is open for any person who wants to establish a company under the micro, small, or medium sector which includes:
