NIC Code for Udyam Registration

The National Industrial Classification (NIC) Codes are crucial for Udyam registration for micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in India. The NIC Code, also known as the Industrial Activity Code, serves as a standardised framework for classifying various economic activities based on their nature and characteristics. It helps ensure accurate categorisation of businesses for better analysis, policy formulation, and data management.

To undergo Udyam registration, MSMEs must provide the appropriate NIC Code that aligns with their primary economic activity. The NIC code, taken from the broader NIC classification, ensures that each business is accurately categorised based on its operations.
