The economy of a country decides the strength and development of that country. The progress and development of small and medium scale industries play a very vital role in the development of economy of a country.
Government of India introduced many reforms to promote and protect these small and medium scale industries in this country. This government has emphasised on planning, in order to widen the horizon of the industrial sector in India.
One such feature that encourages entrepreneurship, the employment situation, and opportunities to lead a decent life, in India, is increasing the competitiveness of MSMEs, the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises.

This unique government identification number is provided to the industry or to the business by the Ministry of MSME, Government of India, only for small or medium sector enterprises. The sole objective of providing this unique government identification number to small and medium enterprises, is to promote and provide maximum benefits to the industries in these sectors, which in turn will help in developing the economy of the nation.
