Indian/Foreign/PCT Application Filing
Indian application filing pertains to patent filings filed exclusively in India.
Foreign application filing involves patent filings in a foreign country of choice. An applicant can file directly in a foreign country with written permission from their home country or can file in their home country first and subsequently file in a foreign country within a year through conventional means.
A PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty) application is used to protect a patent application in multiple jurisdictions (international filing). PCT offers benefits like streamlined filing in multiple jurisdictions, extended publication periods (30-31 months), and cost-effectiveness.
There are two types of patent applications: Provisional and Complete. A provisional application secures a priority date during the invention’s development stage, providing a 12-month window to file a complete application.
A complete application includes comprehensive details about the invention, from components to applicability. Elaborate descriptions, drawings, and specific claims strengthen patent registration and ensure robust intellectual property protection.
