Practice Area: Intellectual Property


In the wake of Prime Minister Mr. Modi’s ‘Make in India’ and ‘Digital India’ initiatives, drafts and inputs were provided to the Indian government in the year 2015 for finalizing India’s Intellectual Property Policy. The IP Policy is yet to be finalized; however, India saw some other developments on the intellectual property front in the last year. The same are – India joined TMClass; new Design Amendment Rules were notified; and some notable decisions were given by Indian courts, including, long-pending patent infringement dispute between Roche and Cipla was decided in favour of Roche.
