NSIC stands for National Small Industries Corporation Limited.

No, NSIC registration is not mandatory for MSME or Small Scale Industry. However it provides a number of benefits.

Udyog Aadhar is also known as Udyog Aadhar memorandum (UAM). Udyog Aadhar was first launched in September 2015 by the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. The purpose of Udyog Aadhaar was to allot MSMEs with a unique identification number that would allow them to access various government benefits such as subsidies and tax benefits. To obtain Udyog Aadhar, MSMEs had to provide their PAN and bank account details along with other relevant information.

Udyam Registration is a self-declaration system so that businesses can register themselves without the need for intermediaries. This single platform allows MSMEs to obtain their Udyam Registration number, which provides access to various government benefits. Udyam has even more benefits than Udog Aadhar did.

The objective of the NSIC certificate is to support and promote the growth of MSME businesses in India.

To obtain a NSIC Certificate, an applicant must be a MSME with a valid Udyog Aadhar Memorandum.

Apart from various subsidies and tax benefits associated with NSIC, cheaper loans, access to technology, access to gem portal and e-tenders are some of the primary benefits.

Single point registration scheme, credit rating scheme, Raw Material Assistance Scheme, National SC/ST Hub, Skill Development Service and Procurement and Marketing Assistance Scheme are some of the NSIC schemes.

5 Lakh is the limit for provisional registration.
