Patent Filing in India: A Vital Step for Innovators

In the present knowledge-based economy, the efforts of Indian innovators are evident in the country’s steady rise up the Global Innovation Index. In 2021, India held the 46th position in GII, up from 81st in 2015-16. During 2020-21 in India, 58,502 patents were filed, of which 28,391 were granted. Comparing the figures from 2010-11 reveals that patent filing in India has risen by 48.5% while patents granted witnessed a whopping growth of 278%. Indian residents have beaten large MNCs in the patent game, making up 40% of the total patents filed in 2020-21. 

Do you think you could be a contributor to India’s innovation landscape? Do you have a novel idea or invention that deserves exclusivity? It could be any product, process, or design that is original, practical, and has industrial applicability.

However, today new inventions are happening at a much faster rate than before. It’s a competitive landscape of startups and innovators. If you want to give shape to your unique idea and rise above the competition, you first need to protect it. That’s where the need for patents comes in.

Wondering how to turn your innovation into an asset through patent filing? We have outlined the patent filing process in India that will get you there. 

The Patent Filing Process in India

The patent filing process requires many meticulous details and a host of conditions needs taking care of to undertake patent filing in India successfully. Let us take a quick look at the steps involved in the patent filing process in India.

Ideating

Before initiating patent filing in India, you have to ideate the innovation. Check if the Indian Patent Law categorizes your innovation as non-patentable. Besides, it is crucial to list the unique advantages of your IP and see to it that the invention includes unique steps to improve existing processes or solutions to problems. 

Patent Search

Patent filing procedure in India involves running a thorough search of patent databases and published material for the existence of prior arts similar to your IP. Your patent application will face rejection if a similar idea, design, or process exists in the public domain. Additionally, you will have to take cognizance of the categories of inventions considered non-patentable by the Indian Patent Law. 

Drafting and filing the patent application

Your patent application is complete only when all relevant details regarding the background of the innovation, its description, drawing (if any), claims, abstract, and summary are included. You need to draft the details carefully to disclose all the precise information regarding the innovation. Once the draft is ready, it is time to apply to the designated Patent Office.

Your patent application should comprise of the following documents:

♦ Form-1:  Application form

♦ Form-2: The provisional or complete specification. Please note that if you are filing with a provisional specification of your invention, you have 12 months to submit the completed specification.

Invention abstract

Drawing, if any

Form-3: Statement and Undertaking of patent filing outside India

Form-5: Declaration of inventorship

Form-9: Request for publication

♦ Form-18: Request for examination of patent application
Power of attorney (if filing through a patent agent)
Requisite patent filing fees (payable in cash/ cheque/ DD)

Publication of your application

The Patent Office will publish your application (with complete specifications) in its official journal after 18 months from the date of filing. However, you can seek priority consideration for early publication. Post-publication, you can expect pre-grant opposition from patent holders who feel your claims violate their patent rights. How well you counter these objections decides the further proceedings of your patent application.

Request examination

Under normal processes, the examination of your patent application starts after 48 months of filing. However, under the provisions of 24B and 24C of the Indian Patent Act, you can expedite the process by submitting form 18A along with requisite fees, under the grounds that you are either, an Indian start-up company, or India is indicated as the International Searching Authority or International Preliminary Examining Authority in the corresponding international application

Post-examination objection handling

The patent examiner files the First Examination Report with the Controller, raising objections, if any, to your innovation. Handling these objections will set you up for the final grant or rejection of the patent.

Patent Grant

The Controller of Patents grants your patent application in India after the objections are handled satisfactorily. The patent journal carries the news of the grant.

The patent filing process is extremely complex, requiring your minute attention, besides being a lengthy and time-consuming affair. The patent search requires the bandwidth to access a wide range of databases and published material to run an exhaustive search for prior arts, the kind that a patent filing servicesprovider will have. Honestly, the drafting of the application complete with techno-legal terms is usually not the forte of an innovator or a start-up company either. Moreover, would you engage in activities that you do best like, ideating innovations or managing your business, or spend hours filling forms and doing the paperwork for patent filing in India?

Further, patent filing services with global operations are knowledgeable about the varying patent rules of different countries. If you are seeking patent protection internationally, such service providers can help you effectively in every country you are filing patents.
