PATENT REGISTRATION

 

Basic Concept

 

Patent Registration Applications are handled by the Patent Office, Controller General of Patents, Designs & Trademarks. Patent applications can be filed electronically with provisional or complete specification, at the appropriate Patent Office.

 

Patent is an exclusive right for an invention provided by the law to the Patentee. It enables the patentee to control the making, using, selling or importing of the patented product or process for producing that product without his / her consent. An invention shall qualify following conditions to be patentable in India as it must be a new product or process involving an inventive step and it must be capable of being made or used in an industry. Patent registrations have a validity of twenty years from the date of filing of patent application, irrespective of whether it is filed with provisional or complete specification.
