The main advantages of the PCT procedure is referred as the international procedure, which have the possibility to delay as much as possible the national or regional procedures, and the respective fees and translation costs, and the unified filing procedure. An international patent application has two phases, which play major role in protecting the patent rights in India. The first phase of international patent application is the international phase in which patent protection is pending under a single patent application filed with the patent office of a contracting state of the PCT.
