Open book on wooden table. Knowledge and education conceptual image.

The Indian Patent Office has released a draft manual of the Patent Office’s practice and procedure. The Office has sought suggestions on the draft manual from stakeholders. The updated manual once finalized will replace the existing manual. The manual provides guidance for effectively prosecuting patent applications at the Office, however, the manual does not have the force and effect of law. Nonetheless, the manual is considered important to anticipate the Office’s interpretation of various provisions of the statute, and fine tune patent prosecution strategy. We will be publishing a detailed analysis of the new manual once released.

The draft manual can be downloaded here.
