Small Scale Company

Registration of an existing or proposed small scale enterprise is voluntary and not compulsory. It has no statutory basis. But, registration is beneficial for the enterprise itself because it makes the unit eligible for availing the benefits given by the Central or State Governments for the promotion of SSIs. Some of the incentives so obtained by them relate to credit guarantee scheme; priority sector lending; capital subsidy; reduced customs duty; ISO-9000 certification reimbursement; power tariff subsidies; exemptions under tax laws; etc.


The State Directorate or Commissioner of Industries or District Industries Centres (DIC's) are the concerned authorities for registration of small scale units. This registration is both location specific and product specific. Like in certain State capitals and metropolitan cities, it is granted to only those units which are located in the designated industrial areas/estates.

A small scale unit is generally subjected to two types of registration. Initially, a provisional registration is granted for the proposed enterprise. It is termed provisional because the enterprise is yet to come into existence. It is granted for a specified period of time during which the unit is expected to be setup. A 'Provisional Registration Certificate (PRC)' enables the unit to obtain :- (i) term loans and working capital from financial institutions, banks under priority sector lending; (ii) facilities for accommodation, land and other approvals; (iii) no objection certificates (NOCs) and clearances from regulatory bodies such as pollution control board, labour regulations, etc.
Once the unit has commenced commercial production, it is granted permanent registration. It is a life time registration given after physical inspection of the enterprise and scrutiny of certain documents. Some of the formalities required to be completed for seeking permanent registration are :-

    Clearance from the municipal corporation


    State pollution control board clearance


    Sanction from the electricity board


    Ownership/tenancy rights of the premises where unit is located


    Copy of partnership deed/Memorandum of articles of association in case of a private limited company


    Sale bill of product manufactured


    Sale bill of each end product


    Purchase bill of each raw material


    Purchase bill of machinery installed


    BIS/QC certificate if applicable


    An affidavit giving status of the unit, machinery installed, power requirement, etc.

The registration certificate so issued by the concerned authority is seen as a proof of the unit being a small scale unit. It enables the unit to get several concessions like :-

    Income tax exemption and Sales tax exemption as per the State Government policy.


    Incentives and concessions in power tariff, etc.


    Price and purchase preference for goods produced.


    Availability of raw material depending on existing policy.

Though, provisional registration is not compulsory for getting a permanent registration. But, a provisional certificate enables the unit to apply to the various departments and agencies for assistance in setting up of the enterprise.

Such a registration procedures is generally uniform across the States. However, there may be some modifications done by individual States. For example, certain States may have a 'SIDO registration scheme' and a 'State registration scheme'. But, whatever be the registration scheme, the main purpose is to maintain statistics and a roll of such units for providing incentives as well as to create nodal centres at the Centre, State and District levels to promote SSIs. It gives recognition to the industrial unit and helps in generating a database for policy planning.

A small scale unit may also become liable for de-registration, if it crosses the investment limits; starts manufacturing any new item or items that require an industrial license or other kind of statutory license; or does not satisfy the condition of being owned, controlled or being a subsidiary of any other industrial undertaking.

Such a registration procedures is generally uniform across the States. However, there may be some modifications done by individual States. For example, certain States
