Patents serve as exclusive monopoly rights granted to applicants, safeguarding their ownership and enhancing their value. This effective tool ensures legal protection for inventors and applicants against theft, imitations, duplications, and false claims of originality.

The primary objective of the patent system is to foster innovation by encouraging inventors to create new technologies and enhance existing ones. This process results in safeguarding intellectual assets, allowing creators to capitalize on their work through exclusive patent rights.

To acquire a patent for a novel technology, the technology must meet specific patentability criteria:

  1. Novelty: The invention must not have been disclosed publicly before the patent application’s filing date.
  2. Inventive Step: The invention should not be obvious to experts in the field.
  3. Industrial Applicability: The invention must have a practical and industrial purpose.

Conducting a thorough patent search is crucial before filing a patent application to assess the invention’s novelty and patentability.

Certain inventions are excluded from patentability under the Patents Act. For instance, discoveries per se are generally not patentable.

Any of the following can lodge a patent application: the inventor, assignee, legal representative, or even a foreign national at the Indian Patent Office.

In India, a patent’s term lasts for 20 years from the filing date.
