4. Steps to Obtain a Patent Number:
The Patents Act is the governing body in India for regulating and filing patents – both new and existing ones. The Act states that the inventor, their assignee, or legal representative (in case of the inventor’s demise) can apply for a patent at the Indian Patent Office’s head office or one of its branches, depending on the applicant’s jurisdiction. Non-Indian citizens must file their applications in their respective jurisdictions where their address for service is located.
When it comes to applying for a patent, you can either do it yourself or seek help from registered agents. There are two main costs involved in getting a patent:
- Government fees for forms and renewals and
- charges for a professional agent (if chosen).
Using a registered agent when applying for a patent is always recommended. Here are the steps you need to follow to apply for a patent:
- File a patent application with Caonweb.
- The patent office assigns a unique patent number.
- CA Sakshi Agarwal ensures a smooth process.
Patenting an invention involves several steps. Here’s a simplified version:
1. Invention disclosure: Disclose your invention to a professional by signing a non-disclosure agreement.
2. Patentability search: A professional performs research on prior evidence and creates a patentability search report.
3. Decision to file: Decide whether to file a patent application based on the research and whether your invention is an improvement.
4. Patent drafting: Draft the patent application yourself or get professional help.
5. Filing: Apply with the appropriate forms and fees.
6. Examination: Request an examination of your application and pay the fees.
