PATENT FILING IN INDIA


Introduction:


Patent Filing in India

In a simple word, Patent filing is a process to get Granted or Registered Patent. Almost every country has a Patent System for granting of rights to the person who has created something new. Normally, the government of the Country holds the right to grant a monopoly to the inventor for his/her Idea/Innovation/Invention for the specified period. Basically, the purpose behind giving monopoly is to give reward/recognition to the person who has invested money, sweat and time for building something which is solving certain problems and making human- beings’ life better. So, as a duty, Government provides a recognition/reward in the form of Patent Grant Certificate which gives a sole monopoly to the inventor for his/her creation.

For Patent filing, country-specific Law needs to be fulfilled. Patent filing in India, Indian Patent Office (IPO) is the Patent Granting Authority administered by the Office of the Controller General of Patents, Design and Trademarks (CGPDTM) which comes under Ministry of Commerce & Industry Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion.


For Patent Filing in India: Indian Patent Office (IPO) follows Indian Patents, Act 1970 and Indian Patent Rules, 2003 for Patent filing in India up to grant of the Patent. IPO works with four branch Patent Offices namely Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai Patent Office for Patent filing and administration. Patent filing is based on the territorial jurisdiction of the Applicant.

“Further, according to Indian Patents, Act 1970: “Patent” means a Patent for any “Invention” granted under Patents, Act 1970. “Invention” means a new Product or Process involving an “Inventive Step” and “Capable of Industrial Application”. “Inventive Step” means a feature of an invention that involves technical advance as compared to the existing knowledge or having economic significance or both and that makes the invention not obvious to a person skilled in the art. “Capable of Industrial Application” means that the invention is capable of being made or used in industry.”

For getting a Patent Registration, certain prescribed eligibility criteria as per the Law need to be fulfilled.




NOVELTY/PATENTABILITY SEARCH:


It is always advisable to conduct Novelty/Patentability Search before Patent filing in India or elsewhere in other jurisdiction to scope out the Novelty of the invention and for understanding whether it is worth for Patent filing or not.
From the definition of Patent, as prescribed under Indian Patents, Act 1970, it is clear that Patent will be granted for the Invention which qualifies as a new Product or Process with Inventive Step and capability for Industrial Application.
Further, the Indian Patents Act 1970, does provide a definition of Non-Patentable Subject Matter. Therefore, to get a granted Patent from Indian Patent Office, an Invention should have Novelty (New), Inventive Step (Non-Obviousness), Capable of Industrial Application and should not have Non-Patentable subject matter as prescribed under Indian Patents, Act 1970.
