Banking Laws, Excise Law and the Direct Taxes Law have incorporated the word SSI in their exemption notifications. Though in many cases they may define it differently, generally the registration certificate issued by the registering authority is seen as proof of being registered as an SSI

States/Union Territories have their own set of facilities and incentives for small scale industries. They relate to development of industrial estates, tax subsidies, power tariff subsidies, capital investment subsidies and other support. Both the Centre and the State Governments, whether under law or otherwise, target their incentives and support packages generally to organisations registered with them.
