A lot of people are confused regarding the difference between udyog aadhar and Udyam Registration. First of all, from the 1st of July 2020, the Udyog Aadhar Registration will convert into the Udyam registration process. They are essentially the same. Secondly, the most important difference between Udyog aadhar vs Udyam is that only the Aadhar card of the business owner is required for Udyog aadhar.

Whereas Udyam registration requires GST and PAN card details of the applicant as per the new MSME definition. Additionally, Udyog aadhar is not integrated with other goverment portals such as gem and treds portal. Udyam registration on the other hand is fully integrated and registered. The Udyog aadhar form is much shorter compared to the Udyam registration form which requires all details from Income Tax and GST.

Furthermore, for Udyog aadhar registration, multiple registrations can be filled under different firm names but only one aadhar card can be registered for Udyam registration per applicant. Udyog aadhar can also be applied without the Aadhar Mobile Link Facility, but Udyam registration requires an Aadhar card that might be linked to any phone number.
