  • Udyog Aadhar is not integrated with other government portals like Gem and Trends portal, while Udyam Registration is fully integrated and registered during the Udyam Registration process.
  • Udyog Aadhar has a short form compared to Udyam Registration, but the latter requires details from the Income Tax and GST in a long-form available on the Udyam Portal.
  • Udyog Aadhar can be applied for without Aadhar Mobile Link Facility, while Udyam Registration requires an Aadhar card linked to a mobile number.
  • Udyog Aadhar can be registered multiple times with different firm names, but Udyam Registration can only be registered once with an Aadhar Card Person Applicant.
