Patent Registration Procedure

The registration process of patent aims at protecting and preventing the unauthorized use, selling and importing of the product or process innovatively invented. At International level the registration process is to be done by filing an International Patent Application. Such an application may be filed by anyone who is a national or resident of a PCT contracting state. It may generally be filed with the national patent office of the contracting state of which the applicant is a national of resident or, at the applicant's option, with the International Bureau of WIPO in Geneva.

In India the patent registration can be obtained by filing an application within the territorial limits where the applicant is residing. Some documents are also required to be attached along with the application. After this the specification is to be examined completely by the concern authority, and then the publication is to be made. If there is any objection then satisfactory explanation is to be given by the applicant. If no opposition is made by any person or anyone having interest in such patent , then patent is granted to the applicant. The protection is granted for a limited period, generally twenty years and this period starts from the date of filing of patent application. If it is desired to keep a patent in force, the prescribed renewal fee should be paid from time to time during the term of patent. The first renewal fee will be due at the expiration of the second year from the date of the patent. Thereafter renewal fee can be paid at the expiration of every succeeding year or as a whole fro twenty years as per the rules laid down in the patent law.
