Author views on MSME Registration of Traders:

1. As per above suggestions, Traders may be allowed to get registered as MSME under the MSMED Act, 2006 via udyog aadhaar Registration.

2. This will help a big group of Traders to get benefits under MSME.

3. Soon Medium Enterprises will also get benefit of Protection against Payments (Delayed Payments).

In any case, a payment due to a micro or small or Medium enterprise (only suggestion) cannot exceed 45 days from the day of acceptance or the day of deemed acceptance.

And if payment got delayed: Interest is to be paid at three times the bank rate notified by the RBI.
