Deadline for Submitting Evidence on Erroneous Abandonment of Trademarks

In March 2016, the Indian Trade Marks Registry announced that numerous trademark applications had been abandoned for non-filing of response to the examination report. Subsequently, there had been a lot of turmoil and numerous complaints were received by the Office in this regard.

Taking note of such complaints the Registrar issued a Public Notice on April 4, 2016. The Controller General assured that appropriate measures shall be taken to reinstate applications and oppositions which were erroneously abandoned.

The respective applicants or their authorised agents concerned are requested to submit representations containing relevant details and sufficient documentary evidence substantiating their case until April 30, 2016.
