If you are an owner of a Micro, Small, or Medium Enterprise, it is mandatory for you to be a part of the MSME Databank. You can do this by following a handful of simple steps online. Being a part of the MSME Databank can open many doors for you in terms of business opportunities and can also facilitate the growth of your enterprise. This article will take you through every detail you will need to know about the MSME Databank. Read on to know more.
The MSME Databank is an exhaustive database of all MSMEs that have operations set up in India. You can become a part of the MSME Databank by filling up the Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (UAM). The UAM is a page-long form through which you will have to self-certify the existence of your enterprise.
While filling up the UAM, you will be required to furnish details such as the basic details of your venture, your banking information, the Aadhaar-related details of the owner/promoter, and a handful of other information. You can fill up the UAM for free.
Once you have successfully registered yourself, you will receive a confirmation mail containing your Udyog Aadhaar Number (UAN), which is a 12-digit number that you will need at the time of registering as an MSME. The UAN is basically an Aadhaar number for your business which can help you save a lot of time and energy while registering as an MSME and registering for the MSME Databank.
The features of the MSME Databank are as follows:
It is accessible 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
The MSME databank helps the government purchase their procurements from MSMEs such as yours.
If you are a part of the MSME bank, you will be eligible for becoming a supplier to the government.
The MSME databank enrolment process is Aadhaar and Udyog Aadhaar enabled.
If your name is a part of the MSME databank, you will have exclusive access to government departments as well as Public Sector Units (PSUs) who frequently look in the direction of MSME units for their procurement needs.
It includes a real-time MIS dashboard for monitoring and updating.
It also allows for mapping of products with HS/NPC codes for easy classification.
If you are an MSME proprietor who has a PAN card in the name of your venture and have the UAN of your business entity handy, you can easily become a part of the MSME Databank. Alternatively, if you are the proprietor of the venture sans the UAN number, all you will need to do is share your PAN Number to successfully complete your registration process. However, you can only go to option 2 if you are the owner of a non-corporate entity. We will now take a look at the eligibility criteria you must follow in order to successfully get into the MSME Databank.
