Small scale industries play a vital role in the socio-economic development of India. To promote and encourage these small-scale industries, the government of the country created the MSMED Act. The Act was created to maintain a list of all the industries registered as MSME or SSI. The record aided in providing support and incentives to these firms. Furthermore, SSI helped in employment of people at little capital investments. All these entities should possess certificate of MSME registration, which should be registered with the Central Government’s MSME department under the Act of MSME Development- 2006
The MSMED Act includes:
Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (UAM) was introduced under the MSMED Act, 2006 to promote the ease of doing business for MSMEs. A simple one-page form is filed and the registration is user-friendly and easy. No documentation is required, except the 12-digit Aadhaar card number. Businesses also have a provision to file more than one Udyog Aadhaar with the same Aadhaar number. UAM can be filed on a self-declaration basis.
ZED scheme encourages manufacturers to manufacture goods for export that are of highest quality. If the standards are met and goods are exported, the exporters will be eligible for rebates and concessions. If they are not exporterd, the goods will be rejected and returned to India.
This scheme is aimed at helping micro, small and medium entreprises produce quality products at competitive prices by adopting the tools. Through the tools, businesses will be able to optimize the resource, improve quality, reduce rejection and rework. Under this scheme, businesses will be sensitized about the tools through activities like workshops, campaigns and seminars.
Under this scheme, the complaints and issues of the businesses will be addressed. The business owners can also track the status of their complaint and open it again it they are dissatisfied with the outcomes.
