Circular No. 128/2016–17


Dear Sir / Madam,

Udyog Aadhar Number in Guarantee Application Form
Kind Attention: SME/Priority Sector Department

Please refer to our Circular No. 126 dated April 12, 2017 whereby, it was, advised that feeding of Udyog Aadhaar Number (UAN) in the Guarantee Application Form has been made mandatory. However since then we have been receiving lot of queries from MLIs regarding difficulties in obtaining UAN particularly where the applicant is an upcoming unit and date of commencement cannot be feeded in the memorandum for getting UAN. Further, UAN is difficult to obtain where there is non-availability of Aadhaar nos. in few states like Assam.
In view of above, it has been decided to make the field optional. However, MLIs are requested to obtain UAN, wherever possible, while submitting the application for coverage. Further, MLIs are requested to obtain UAN for existing accounts already covered under CGTMSE and update it in the system using menu:- Maker end : Guarantee Maintenance -> Modify borrower details and Checker end: Guarantee Maintenance -> Approve borrower details (Refer Circular 115 for modification in borrower details).

The contents of the Circular may please be brought to the notice of all your offices

Yours faithfully,

General Manager
