Indian Intellectual Property notifies installation of computer monitors at the document receiving counters
The Controller General of Patents, Designs and Trademarks (CGPDTM) has through a public notice issued on
December 23, 2013 notified that the Document Receiving
Counters situated in front of Trademark Registry premises will now be equipped with Computer Monitors, thereby facilitating scrutinization and verification with
respect to the data entered in the electronic system at the receiving counters.
The CGPDTM has further requested the Applicants/ Agents to properly verify each and every detail entered in the electronic system at the Receiving Counters and
that complaints regarding entry of wrong details will not be entertained normally by the Trademark and Patents Office.
The CGPDTM has also directed that the person who is depositing the documents should be capable of verifying the entries done and shall remain at the counter at
the time of data entry.
This is a welcome move by the Registry, as it will ensure entry of correct details pertaining to a trademarks, patents, designs etc. and will consequently avoid
the problems witnessed by entry of wrong details in the electronic system.
