Frequently Asked Questions


What is a trademark?
Any symbol, word, name, device, numerals or combination of both, which can be represented graphically can be registered as trademark. A trademark is unique symbol which distinguishes your goods or services from others.
What is a trademark Class?
Controller General of Patents, Designs and Trademarks has classified goods and services under 45 classes. Your application must mention the class/classes the goods/services represent. The trademark would be registered under those classes only.
Which trademarks cannot be registered?
Any trademark, which is identical or deceptively similar to an existing registered trademark or trademark for which application for registration has been made, cannot be registered. Also trademark that would likely cause deception or confusion or is offensive may not be registered. Geographical names, common names, common trade words and common abbreviation can also not be registered as a trademark.
Which documents required for trademark registration?
A copy of the trademark to be registered along with the address and identity proof of the trademark owner is required. In case of Company, the name of the Company along with its Certificate of Incorporation and Address proof is required.
How long does it take for the trademark to get registered?
As soon as you have applied for trademark, you can start using the TM symbol. Usually it takes 15 to 20 months for reviewing your application. After that if there is no objection they will release your name in the official Gazette, and after that you can use (R) symbol.
Will the trademark be valid outside India?
No the  trademark is registered in India and will be valid only in India.
Should the trademark be filed in the own name or companies name?
Many startups register it in their own names, while large businesses would prefer to do so in the name of the company. This is because the future of a startup is always in doubt. If owned by the founder, the trademark would be valid regardless of the state of the company. A trademark license agreement is, however, needed in this case.
Is there a guarantee the trademark will be approved?
It depends entirely on the government's judgement. But if it is unique, it is highly likely that it will be granted.
How long is the trademark valid for?
Once  a trademark is registered, it is valid for 10 years. Renewal is to be filed after ten years.
What is the process of Trademark being registered by the Ministry?

Trademark registration ordinarily composes of the following main components before the Trademark is granted:

  1. Application of Trademark in the right class and with the correct details
  2. Send to Vienna Codification - As soon as a new trade mark application is filed, a Vienna Code is assigned if the trade mark comprises figurative elements/logo. Vienna codification is done by the Registry so that trademark searches can be conducted for artworks/logos.
  3. Formalities Check – This is the first step of verifying the Trademark Application whereby The Trade Mark Registry usually checks if the basic requirements are met such as: whether the POA has been uploaded (when filed through an attorney) and whether appropriate translation/transliteration has been filed when the trademark is not in English/Hindi.
  4. Issue of Examination Report from the Ministry – On verification of basic details, the registry examines the application under various sections to see if the Trademark applied for would need any clarification under any of the Legal Sections of the Act. When they feel that any information is required, then they would issue an examination report with the relevant section to which a reply MUST be filed.
  5. Exam Report Issued / Accepted – After acceptance of the Trademark application or submission Examination Reply, as the case may be, if the registry is satisfied then they will proceed for the Trademark name or symbol or both to be published in the Trademark Journal
  6. "Advertised before acc" or "Advertised" or "Accepted & Advertised" – At this stage the trademarked name or logo or both are advertised in the Trademark journal and kept open for Objection for 4 months for any third party to oppose this Trademark. When any such objections are received, the status would change to Opposed – to which a proper reply should be filed.
  7. Registered – if no other objections, clarifications or oppositions are required to be addressed, the trademark application would be accepted and marked as ‘Registered’. This when the Trademark applicant can start using the ® symbol.
What is covered under Trademark Application service by LegalWiz.in?
The drafting of entire trademark application along with guidance for the appropriate classes and final filing using the Ministry Registered Attorney is covered under the service offering of Trademark Application.
What if my Trademark application is Objected after filing?

Trademark applications are first examined by the Ministry to see if any similar trademarks / trade names are already pending or registered with them. If they feel that there are such similarities, then the same is sent under the ‘Examination Report’ stage. On clearance of the examination stage, the ministry publishes the trademark in its Journal and keeps it open for objection by the public for 120 days. If any objections are received then the same is notified to the trademark applicants.

Legalwiz.in helps you reply to the examination report issued by the ministry as well as to file reply against objections received, if any, at a nominal cost.

Absolutely, the applicant can apply in any number of classes that are necessary to protect the brand based on the current and future businesses of the applicant.
What is the government fees for Single Class TM Application vs Multi Class Applications?
For the Ministry the fees is levied on the basis of ‘Number of Classes Applied’ and not ‘Number of Applications’. Hence, for each class the government fees of Rs. 4,000 is to be paid. For example, an application under 3 classes would have a government fees of Rs. 12,000 (4,000 x 3).
If I register my Brand Name & Logo, would they be considered as 2 applications or 1 application?
The ministry accepts application containing the Logo & Brand name as 1 application if both of them are submitted together in one image. Hence, the charge for single application would apply. Separate filings can also be done in case the applicant wants to change the logo or the brand name in the future and retain the other.
