Automated process for generation and issuance of Patent Certificates

The Government has launched the system of issuing e-patent certificates after grant of patent. The salient features are
  • The patent certificate will be generated through an automated system after  the patent is granted by the Controller and shall be transmitted to the applicant concerned or his authorised patent agent on record to the email address recorded with the office.
  • The patent certificate shall also be made available along with status of the application concerned on the official website (www.ipindia.gov.in), so that the same may be downloaded and printed, as desired by applicants.

The main advantages of the system are that it eliminates the delays in dispatch of patent certificates to the applicants concerned who can download and print certificates from the website, thus ushering in greater transparency. It also enables them to take further action in a timely fashion.
