Published On: Jan 13, 2023Last Updated: Jan 13, 20236.7 min read

Jaipur, also known as the pink city, is a major Indian city that’s famous for its unique handicrafts, artisanal jewellery and materials, textiles et cetera. Many businesses in Jaipur are decades, if not centuries old; all these businesses have made a name for themselves and are well-known in Rajasthan for their quality. Unfortunately, since these businesses have been passed down for generations, they generally do not have a trademark registration. Because of this, it is possible for some other brand to register a similar trademark, create confusion amongst the consumers, and take advantage of their decades-old goodwill. Hence, it is extremely important to go for trademark registration in Jaipur for your business.

Benefits of Trademark Registration in Jaipur

You might be wondering what advantages you’ll get if you go for trademark registration. Well, a trademark registration lets you protect your brand all over India. It also lets you apply for international registration, and protect and expand your business overseas. If you have a registered trademark, you can stop other people from using the same mark as well as any similar mark which can lead to confusion in the minds of consumers. You can also stop other people if they try to take advantage of your brand. When you have a business that is so close to your heart, it is very important for you to take all the necessary steps to protect it, and trademark registration does just that.

Process of Trademark Registration in Jaipur

  1. Secondly, you need to check if anyone else has already registered a similar Trademark. To check, you have to use the IP India Trademark website.
  2. Thirdly, you have to fill out and submit a Trademark application either at the Trademark Registry or online on the IP India website. You can start using the TM symbol next to your Trademark after successful submission.
  3. The fourth step is for the Registrar to examine your Trademark and evaluate if it’s appropriate for Trademark Registration. They will either raise objections or approve the Trademark. In case of objections, you need a Trademark Attorney to file replies. You can also choose to not submit any reply and abandon the application.
  4. Once approved, the Trademark is published in Trademark Journal. Any person who feels that this Trademark is similar to their Trademark is required to file an opposition within 3 months from publication. If you receive opposition, once again you need a Trademark Attorney to file replies to it. The Trademark registry will evaluate your replies with the other party’s statements and decide if you can register your Trademark. You can also abandon the application at this point by not filing any replies.
  1. Finally, you will receive your registration certificate if there was no opposition or if the Trademark registry found your replies to the opposition to be satisfactory. After this, you can use the ® symbol next to your Trademark.

You can own a Trademark forever. However, every Trademark needs to be renewed every 10 years. To understand the Trademark Registration Process in detail, you should go through this article: Understanding Trademark & its Registration Process in India
