Patent Registration India

What is Patent?

A Patent is an intellectual property and is the exclusive right granted for inventions. It is granted by the Government of India to the Patentee for a limited period of 20 years from the date of application. It is provided in exchange for the full disclosure of his/her invention, for excluding others from making, selling, using and importing the patented product or process. The purpose of this system is to encourage innovation, dissemination of technology and development of industries. Patents ensure legal title for the invention for which patent has been granted. Such patents may be extremely valuable to an individual or company and they should make best use of this system. Patent right is territorial in nature. For example, Patent granted in US is not enforceable in India. The inventors or their assignees should file separate patent applications in India through patent agents in India for obtaining patents in India.

Patent Registration Process in India:

Patentability Search:

An invention to be eligible for the Patent grant should be absolutely novel. A patent search is not mandatory. An experienced Patent agent can help in searching the database or conducting a worldwide search to ascertain whether a product or process or method has already been applied for by another in any country across the globe. Such search results will help him to make necessary modifications to his invention and draft patent specification so that his claims do not overlap the claims of a prior patent applicant or patent holder.

Provisional application:

An inventor of a process or product may file an ordinary application in the form of Provisional Application/Provisional Specification if the applicant finds that his invention is not ready. This helps him/her to establish the priority of the applicant over any other person(s) who is likely to file an application for patent in respect of the same invention being developed concurrently. It also helps the applicant to get a maximum period of twelve months to fully develop his invention by himself or with the help of others who are interested in the economic value of the patent before filing the complete specification within twelve months.

Complete Specification:

An inventor who has his invention ready at the time of application may file a complete specification. As the name specifies a complete specification shall contain details like Title, the field of invention, objectives, advantages, complete description, claims, abstract, drawings, etc. It may take around 2 to 4 years to get a Patent registered in India. An applicant for a patent should comply with all the necessary patent formalities and procedures within the stipulated period. It is pertinent to note that a complete specification should be drafted by a well-qualified and experienced registered patent agent. If the applications are not properly drafted it can encounter objections from the Patent office. Only if such objections are cleared an application will be accepted for patent registration. Similarly, if claims are not properly drafted a patent can be invalidated in the court of law by a competitor. There have been several cases where patents were canceled as it was considered vague by a court of law.

A patent is granted by the Government of India to the Patentee for a limited period of 20 years from the date of application after which it will go into the public domain. A patent has to be renewed from the second year onwards. If he fails to renew the patent within the prescribed period patent shall fall into the public domain and all rights over it shall be lost.
