Mobile applications have become a part of our day to day lives. Everything nowadays is done with just one click. Keeping in mind the technological developments, Office of the Controller General of Patents, Designs and Trade Marks (hereinafter referred to as the ‘CGPDTM’) has launched the Official Mobile APP ‘Intellectual Property India’ for intellectual property rights. The App can be downloaded from their official website ipindia.gov.in or from Google Playstore.
The App will provide information related to Patent Office, Designs Wing of the Patent Office, Trade Marks Registry, Geographical Indications Registry, Copyright Office, Semiconductor Integrated Circuits Layout-Design Registry & Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Intellectual Property Management. Even though utilities like updates on Application Status, relevant Acts and Rules, Searches, etc, that are on offer on the App can already be availed directly on the IP India website, the launch of the App certainly makes the process more user friendly for the stakeholders, and goes a long way to demonstrate the current Government’s objective of promoting the Digital India Programme.
