Usually, it takes about 5 years from the filing date to get a patent grant in India. That is normally the time it takes in several other countries as well. However, after India introduced the expedited and express examination option through amendments to patent rules, patents can now be acquired within a year. The Controller General of Patents Designs and Trademarks has in fact granted several patents within a year during the last 2 years.
BananaIP Counsels, a top-ranked patent firm in India, has over the years helped several of its clients acquire quick patent grants in India and internationally. The firm's highly specialised patent attorneys use substantive and procedural strategies to help their clients hasten the process of acquiring a patent. Some of their clients' patent applications received grants in India in 7 to 8 months, and BananaIP is now organising a session at their Bangalore office on 23rd November, 2019 at 2 PM to share some strategies on speeding the patent process.
The session will be led by Dr. Kalyan Kankanala, an accomplished patent attorney and author of the most highly referred book on the subject in India, Indian Patent Law and Practice published by Oxford University Press. He will be joined by Gaurav Mishra, who specialises in patent strategy. Together, they will provide insights on what can be done to get a patent fast, and how a patent can possibly be acquired within 1 year.
Speaking about the seminar, Dr. Kalyan Kankanala said, "A patent grant provides the right to sue for infringement, which is not available for pending applications. To stop competitors you need a patent grant, and you need it fast. Value of granted patents is also much higher than applications, and speedy grant has several advantages.
During the seminar, we hope to educate participants about how quick patent grants can be acquired in India. It involves many aspects from the quality of the invention to strategic steps during the patent process, and we will discuss all of them."
The seminar is expected to throw light on the patent procedure and system in India and options available to get speedy grants. It will be useful for established companies, start-ups, and individuals seeking to acquire quick patents in India. BananaIP's seminars have earlier received very high ratings, and one may expect to gain useful knowledge by attending this event.
