PATENT GRANT PROCESS

7 Working Days

You would need to send in all the details regarding the patent search, including uses of the invention, benefits over existing products or processes and information regarding its publication in a recognised journal, if any. Try to make these details specific, as this would ease the search process. A patent attorney, our affiliate, will take up your request and conduct a thorough search of the database.

20 Working Days

Within a week of receiving confirmation that the product or process is patentable, the application will be skillfully drafted by the attorney, ensuring that the patent provides the widest protection to your invention. Once this is done, the application is filed with the Registrar. The time it takes to file this application would depend on the scope of the invention, the industries it is applicable to and the number of similar existing products/processes.

20 Months

After 12 to 15 months of filing the initial application, the patent is published in recognised patent journals (this can be reduced to just 10 to 15 days on payment of fast-track fees of Rs. 2600). If all is in order, the examination process will commence. Examination is conducted by a government-appointed patent officer. If everything is found in order, the patent is granted and later issued.
