Patents give holders temporary exclusive rights to produce a product or create a new manufacturing process. After an Indian patent application expires, anyone may use that invention.

An evaluation is carried out to ensure that the process or product is original, innovative (not previously published), helpful, and industrially applicable since these criteria must be met for a patent to be awarded (fit for commercial use).

Patent Registration FAQ's

A patent is an exclusive right given to someone who has created a new and useful product, improved an old product, or created a brand new method of producing a product. For a set amount of time, it consists of the sole right to produce the newly invented object or produce an article using the newly discovered method. Anyone may use the invention after the patent’s allotted time has passed.

To promote and advance new technology and industry, patents are granted. A new invention’s disclosure is only permitted if the inventor receives compensation for the talents and labour he used to create it; otherwise, he would like to keep his work a secret. The inventor divulges the specifics of the new invention and how to use it in exchange for the temporary monopoly, allowing others to make use of the invention after the monopoly time has ended.

Certain benefits come with becoming an inventor. Money rewards serve as a motivator for technological advancements. An invention need not be patented in order to exist. As long as he can keep it secret, an inventor is allowed to use his creation in secret. However, under normal conditions, the chances of keeping the formula secret are slim, particularly when an inventor needs to recruit collaborators or workers to implement the innovation.
