Modification of the Trademark Law in India

The main changes are the following:

  • The increase of the Indian Trademark Office’s official fees in regards to the new Indian Trademark applications, renewals and assignments.
  • Simplification of forms by reducing their number.
  • In relation to the new use claims, the applicant must provide an affidavit and evidence of use to support this claim.

With these measures and with the introduction of the e-mail for communications, the Indian Trademark Office aims to update the anachronistic and slow function of this institution.
