India Logo Registration Process

Upon filing of the India logo application, the registry will issue an acknowledge receipt with the filing date and number allotted to the application.  The India logo application is then formally examined by the Indian Trade Marks Office, as to its inherent registrability and/or any similarity with existing marks.

If an objection to registration is raised, an official examination report will issue. To overcome the objection, it is necessary to file a written response or presenting evidence of acquired distinctiveness and in most cases, an interview/hearing with the examiner is posted. The Registrar may require the applicant to file an affidavit testifying to such user with exhibits showing the mark as used.

If, following examination, the trade mark application is considered allowable, a Letter of Acceptance (TLA order) will issue, after which the logo will be published in the Trade Marks Journal. If there are no oppositions within 4 months from the date of advertisement in the Trade Marks Journal, then the logo registration certificate will issue.

India logo registration is a tedious process and it takes around 18-24 months to obtain registration in a straight-forward case, without any objections or oppositions. However, once the logo application is filed, an India logo application number is allotted immediately and the priority starts from the date of application.

Duration of India Logo

Once the India logo is registered, it is valid for 10 years starts with registration date. The registration is renewable for periods of 10 years.
