Automated Issuance of Trademark Registration Certificates

The Indian Trade Marks Registry announced in a notice that it implements an automated process for generation and issuance of trademark registration certificates.

Accordingly, from August 1, 2016, the registration certificates will be generated through an automated system in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Trade Marks Act & Rules and made available to the applicants concerned or their authorised agents on record, in respect of all trademark applications:

- which have been published in the Trade Marks Journal Number 1720 dated November 23, 2015, and thereafter,
- where no request for amendment filed on behalf of the applicant is pending for disposal,
- where the copy of original application for registration is available in the Trade Marks Registry’s electronic database,
- where no requirement (like fee, Power of Attorney, etc.) is pending for compliance on part of the applicant , and
- which have not been specifically prohibited for registration by the order of any court, IPAB or any competent authority.

The Registration certificate will be transmitted to the applicant concerned or his authorised agent on record on his email and shall also be made available on the official website along with status of the application concerned.

Cases which are left out by the automated registration process due to aforesaid reasons will be processed as per law by the Registration wing of the Examination Publication and Registration Section of the TMR Mumbai through the present Trade Marks System on case to case basis.
