How is the patent application filed via Direct filing route in EPO?

An Indian applicant can directly file Patent Application in EPO or individual countries without claiming any priority from any application filed for the same or substantially the same invention. However, it is pertinent to note that if the Indian Applicant is an Indian resident, then he/she has to seek prior written approval (Form 25) from the Indian Patent Office (IPO) for filing a Patent Application with EPO directly, without first filing in India.
