Micro, Small and Medium enterprise sector holds immense importance for the Indian Economy. It plays a very crucial role in providing employment, generating output and contributing to exports of the country. MSMEs are widely distributed across the different states of the country. The state of Uttar Pradesh holds the highest number of MSMEs. Its large labour population and developed infrastructure provide it great potential for the expansion and improvement of the micro, small, and medium enterprise sector. This study has examined the performance of the MSME sector in UP using secondary data gathered from the website of the Ministry of MSME, Government of India. The examination of four MSME censuses in UP has shed insight into the success of the states small and medium-sized business sectors.
