As we know recently the government had announced new definition for MSME. However, same was not added to MSMED Act, 2006 but some same has been added by virtue of notification. Now the registration under MSME would be known as UDYAM Registration.
This website and classification shall be applicable from 01.07.2020 till then one can register at Udhyog aadhar website and then shift to new Udyam.
The classification of micro, small and medium enterprise after the new amendment is as follows (both conditions needs to be fulfilled simultaneously):
