NSIC’s registration scheme has been in operation for the last 37 years and was remodeled in May 1976, and is now called the Single Point Registration Scheme.

Automatic registration is given to units which are enlisted with NSIC. The units registered under this scheme are manufacturing a broad spectrum of products involving high technology and sophisticated production processes and have become a formidable source of supplies to the Government both at the Centre and States besides Public Sector Undertakings, etc.
