Different types of patent
applications are filed. A patent application which is first filed
in the Indian patent office without claiming priority from an
earlier filed patent application is called an ordinary Indian
patent application. The basis of India patent application is a
legal document called a specification. Its contents determine
whether a patent can be granted. Ligamine advises its
clients regarding filing of ordinary patent applications in India.
Each case is studied and the client is advised as to whether a
provisional patent application has to be filed or a complete patent
application has to be filed in the Indian Patent office. The
specification will contain a full description of the invention. It
is important that you put all the necessary information about the
invention in the description. The application would also normally
comprise claims. These set out exactly what is to be covered by the
patent and must be carefully drafted to maximise protection for an
invention. Finally, the application may contain drawings to
illustrate the invention.
Once the application text has been prepared, this is filled at the
Indian patent office .
