Udyog Aadhaar is a twelve digit Unique Identification Number provided by the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, by the Government of India for small and medium enterprises, beginning in September 2015. It is also known as Aadhaar for Business.
Having a Udyog Aadhar gets your store verified (with a verified TICK) and increases the trust factor of the users since it is government verified as well.
