A Patent

A patent is the granting of exclusive property rights by a government authority to an inventor. The validity of patent is for 20 years. Once patented, the patent owner will have sole rights to the invention for the prescribed period of time, thus protecting your invention from being copied by competitors. The owner has the rights to lease or sell the patent.

Not everything can be patented. The invention needs to be new, useful and non-obvious to be eligible for patent registration. In India, there are four paten offices- New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata. Application for registration of patent requires to be filed with regard to the territorial jurisdiction of where the applicant is located. Government of India grants patent to 6 types of applications:

    • Ordinary or Non-Provisional Application
    • Convention Application
    • PCT International Application
    • PCT National Phase Application
    • Patent of Addition
    • Divisional Application

1. Ordinary or Non-Provisional Application

This type of patent application is filed when there is no priority claim involved. Also, if the application filed is not any kind of follow up of a previous convention application, it is deemed Non-provisional. These applications require a comprehensive description thoroughly delineating the invention.

2. Convention Application

When there is a claim for a priority date, with regard to the same application or a related one filed in any of the convention countries, convention application is sought. Within a year from the date of the primary filing of a similar application in the convention country, the applicant is required to file an application in the Indian Patent Office

3. PCT International Application

PCT Application is an international application.  It streamlines patent application process in many countries in a single attempt. PCT Application, which is regulated by the Patent Corporation Treaty, is valid in up to 142 countries.

4. PCT National Phase Application

When an international application is filed according to PCT designating India, national phase application can be filed in India within 31 months from the international filing date or the priority date, whichever is earlier.

5. Patent of Addition

Patent of addition is filed when an application has already been filed but a few modifications need to be incorporated to the same. This type of application does not require the remittance of renewal fee since the paten of addition can only be granted after the grant of the parent patent.

6. Divisional Application

Sometimes, one application might claim for more than one invention. In such scenarios, the applicant can divide a single application to remit two or more applications. The priority date for divisional application is similar to that of the parent application.
