Procedure of handling the application under the PCT in India

The patent office designated by the contracting state becomes a receiving office for receiving patent applications. These applications are referred to International Searching Authorities (ISA) to carry out the patent search on a global basis.

 In case the receiving office is also an ISA, a separate referral is not required. There is also a provision to get a patent application examined by international preliminary Examining Authorities which, in most cases are ISA.
