Patent registration can be obtained in India for an invention. A patent is a right granted to an individual or enterprise by the government that disallows others from making, using, selling, or importing the patented product or process without the patent holder’s approval or consent.
The primary step an inventor takes to safeguard their innovation from being exploited is to file a patent. Patent application in India is a time-consuming procedure, but you can have your registration completed your registration in a hassle-free way.
Types of Patent Application in India
Provisional Application – A provisional application, also known as a temporary application, is filed when an invention is still in the works and has not yet been finished. Any other relevant inventions will not be recognised as prior art to the inventor’s application if a patent is filed early. When an invention requires more time to develop, this form of patent application is filed.
Ordinary or Non-Provisional Application – An ordinary or non-provisional application application does not have any priority to claim or if the application is not filed in pursuance of any preceding convention application. A complete specification can be submitted via:
Direct Filing – Wherein complete specification is initially filed with the Indian Patent Office without filing any corresponding provisional specification.
Subsequent Filing – Wherein complete specification is filed after the filing of the corresponding provisional specification and claiming priority from the filed provisional specification.
Convention Application – The convention application is filed for claiming a priority date based on the same or similar application filed in any of the convention countries.
To avail a status of the convention, an applicant must apply to the Indian Patent Office within a year from the date of the initial filing of a similar application in the convention country.
To re-iterate in simpler terms, a convention application entitles the applicant to claim priority in all the convention countries.
PCT International Application – PCT international application does not result in an international patent grant, it open the way for a shortened patent application process in multiple nations at once.
It is governed by the Patent Corporation Treaty, which can be validated in up to 142 nations. By filing this application, an innovation will be protected from being copied in these nations.
PCT National Application – If the applicant discovers an innovation, or a modest modification of an invention, that has already been applied for or patented by the applicant, he must file this application. If the invention does not need a significant inventive step, a PCT National application can be filed.
Divisional Application – If an application claims more than one invention, the applicant may choose to partition it and submit two or more applications. These applications have a priority date that is comparable to the parent application.
