Does Indian Patent give global protection?

Patents like other Intellectual Property Rights are territorial in nature and therefore are effective only within the territory of India.

However, filing an application in India enables the applicant to file a corresponding application for same invention in convention countries, within or before expiry of twelve months from the filing date in India.

Separate patents should be obtained in each country where the applicant requires protection of his invention in those countries. There is no patent valid worldwide.
