Patent Application

A patent application in India is a request pending at a patent office for the grant of a patent for the invention described and claimed by that application. A Patent application consists of a description of the invention, together with official forms and correspondence relating to the application. The patent application in India is also used to refer to the process of applying for a patent, or to the patent specification itself.

Patent Application Process


In order to obtain the grant of a patent, a person, either legal or natural, must file an application at a patent office with jurisdiction to grant a patent in the geographic area over which coverage is required. This will often be a national patent office but could be a regional body, such as the European Patent Office. Once the patent specification complies with the laws of the office concerned, a patent may be granted for the invention described and claimed by the specification. The process of "negotiating" with a patent office for the grant of a patent, and interaction with a patent office with regard to a patent after its grant, is known as patent prosecution. Patent prosecution is distinct from patent litigation which relates to legal proceedings for infringement of a patent after it is granted.
