NIC Code (NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL CLASSIFICATION Code) for Service Sector

NIC Code ( NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL CLASSIFICATION CODE ) is a statistical standard for developing and maintaining a comparable database for various economic activities. This code has been developed with the intent to ascertain and analyze how each economic activity is contributing towards national wealth.

The Department of Policy and Promotion in their Press Note 4 (2014 series) dated 26 June 2014 decided to switch over to the NIC 2008 from the NIC 1987 version. Since then, all Indian Companies are advised to follow NIC 2008.
NIC 2008 is more compatible with the international system of classification. This enables the compliance processes for registration to flow smoothly.
NIC codes are used in MSME registration, Udyam registration, Udyog Aadhaar registration, Company Registration/ LLP Registration. Applicants should use these codes and submit for registration with respect to their enterprises. Below is the updated NIC code list for your review.
The United National Statistical Commission, Department of Policy and Promotion made some improvements in classification and updated the NIC Code 2008. Hereafter users should use and follow NIC 2008 extensively.
