On 18th September, 2012, CGPDTM launches a new online tool for making any correction in the data entered in the Trade mark Office official database.

The one of its kind step is taken by Trademark office in order to overcome the problem faced by the Applicants due to data wrongly entered in the Official Records. In case of any clerical error (s) found in the data entry of an application for the registration of trademark or in the record of the registered trademark, any concerned applicant/proprietor/ their authorized agent may avail this facility and apply for the correction of the errors on part of Trade Mark Office by creating a login Id on the Portal provided for the same. The Applicant needs to upload the supporting documents or proofs along with the request for the correction required to be made.

According to CGPDTM, the competent officer will keep record of all the corrections and will scrutinize such request on the basics of records and supporting documents uploaded by the concerned authority and will correct the relevant records.

This tool is meant for only corrections in clerical or typographical errors in the trademark records and not for any change or amendment occurs during the whole course of the application.

This is a good initiative taken by CGPDTM, which helps in reducing the clerical/typographical errors in the trademark records.
