    Publication of Application

    Once the application is filed it goes to the Indian patent office. Simultaneously, the Indian patent office publishes the patent application in the official patent journal. Along with the same, the patent application comes in the public domain after the patent office publishes it.

    Every application is published in the official journal after 18th month period from the date of filling of application or the date of priority of application whichever is earlier. There is a provision for early publication of an Indian Patent application by filling a formal request. The early publication rule does not apply if:

    • Application has been abandoned under Section 9(1) of The Act.
    • The applicant has withdrawn his application three months prior to the expiry of said prescribed period of 18 months


    Examination of the Application

    After publication, the next is the examination of the patent application. Unlike the publication of the application, the examination does not happen automatically by way of filing the Indian patent application.

    For examination, the applicant has to request for examining their patent application. It helps in determining whether the invention meets the statutory requirements for patentability or not. The examiner examines the application considering the prior art information of the invention.


    Objection by the Examiner

    The examiner can raise the objections while examining the application. The examiner scrutinizes the application following the patent act. Based on the information mentioned application, the examiner will issue an examination report to the applicant. The examiner will state all the objections related to the application.


    Office Action Response

    Once the examiner issues the Examination Report, the applicant has to successfully revert on the objections raised by the examiner to receive a patent grant. The applicant has to respond to examination reports, appearing for hearing, etc.

    Note- The maximum duration given to respond is 6 months from the issuing date of the First examination report. However, this duration can be extended for a period of another 3 months by filing a request to the IPO.


    Grant of Patent Registration

    Once the application overcomes all the objections raised by the examiner, the patent office will grant a Patent to the applicant. Once the patent is granted, the IPO publishes it in the patent gazette.

    What are the Penalties for Unauthorized Claims to Patent Rights?

    This right remains valid for 20 years, from the date of filing. The holder of the patent is entitled to sue any person who violates the patent and chooses who to sell, grant or license the patent.

    New Indian Patent Rules Offer Benefits to Startups and Small Entities

    India’s latest chains of amendments to its Patent Rules are expected to hugely benefit startups & small entities requesting patent protection for their inventions. With these amendments, overall filing and registration fees for startups & small entities have been considerably reduced. While the fees applicable for small entities have been concentrated outright, startups can retain their “startup” position for up to ten years, thus permitting them the benefit of favorable fees, etc. for an absolute extended period from what was earlier available.

    Earlier this year, the famous Scheme for “Facilitating Startups Intellectual Property Protection” (SIPP) that was firstly launched as a pilot project to help startups in increasing and protecting their intellectual property has been extended for a additional period of 3 years from April 01, 2020 to March 31, 2023.

    Amendments on 19 October 2020

    The Patents (Amendment) Rules, 2020 simplified the procedure concerning to the submission of priority applications and their translations, as well as the filing of working statements (Form 27). These amendments will trim down both compliance and prosecution expenses for applicants.

    Amendments on 04 November 2020

    The Patents (Second Amendment) Rules, 2020 has also further reduce the filing & prosecution costs for applicants that are startups as well as small entities. These amendments shall cumulatively make IP protection affordable as well as available to various classes of business, and will likely also improve patent filings.

    Fees for Small Entities

    The Patent Rules, 2003 beforehand allowed a 50% decline in the fees payable by a small entity, measured up to that payable by other entities. However, now, the fee payable by a small entity is reduced to 20% of that payable by other entities. This enables the fee payable by a small entity at par with that payable by a natural person & a startup.

    Change in the Status of Startups

    The Patent Rules, 2003 beforehand provided that an entity would no longer be able to claim the position of a startup after a period of “5 years” from the date of its incorporation/registration. The amendments substitute this period of 5 years by a “period during which it is acknowledged and recognized by the competent authority”.

    At present, an entity ceases to be known as a ‘startup’ by the DPIIT (Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade) on the completion of 10 years from the date of its incorporation/registration or if its turnover for any previous year exceeds 100 crore rupees
