India: IPO publishes issues and suggestions from the latest stakeholder meeting

The Indian Patent Office (IPO) has published a list of issues and suggestions for improvement, collected during the last stakeholder meeting which took place on 03 August 2018 in New Delhi. The list contains 23 points raised for patents, 24 for trade marks, 3 for designs and copyrights. For each point, the IPO provides a response and - if applicable – describes the step which is planned to be taken by the IPO. In the area of patent information, the users wished for granted patents to be accompanied by the final set of claims (point 3). The stakeholders also pointed out the difficulty of tracking the progress of an opposition procedure and suggested that this information should also be included in the status of an application (point 21). The current list is available on the IPO’s website, where also the lists from the years 2017 and 2016 are made available (PDF format).
