Frequently Asked Questions
Trademark means any symbol, word, name, device, numerals or combination of both, which can be represented graphically can be registered as a trademark. A trademark is a unique symbol which distinguishes your goods or services from others. A Trademark is registered in India under Trademark Act, 1999, which allows the owner to enjoy exclusive ownership of the Brand Name/ Logo under which it is registered.
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.
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, a 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 are not acceptable to Register a Trademark.
A copy of the logo/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 along with Board Resolution to authorise the Director. Further, any documents to claim User Date, if any, are to be provided as proof.
Usually it takes at least 15 to 20 months for the registration of the Trademark applied, after which the owner can use (R) symbol beside the Trademark. However, as soon as Online TM Application is made, the applicant can start using the TM symbol. According to the verification procedure, the registration may get delayed.
The Online Trademark Application filed under Trademark Act, 1999 is verified and registered in India and will be valid only in India.
Many start-ups register a Trademark in the name of the founder, while large businesses would prefer to do so in the name of the company. This is because the future of a start-up 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.
It depends entirely on the government's judgement. But if it is unique, it is highly likely that it will be granted.
The Registration is valid for 10 years from the date of application and may then be renewed for a period of 10 years within 6 months of the due date of expiry of the 10 years.
Trademark registration ordinarily composes of the following main components before the Trademark is granted:
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.
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.
For the Ministry the fees is levied on the basis of ‘Number of Classes Applied’ and not ‘Number of Applications’. For Individual or StartUps, fo each class the government fees of Rs. 4,500 is to be paid. For all other cases, the goverment fees of Rs. 9000 is to be paid. For example, if an individual applies for a trademark application under 3 classes would have a government fees of Rs. 13,500 (4,500 x 3).
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.
If you have valid documents issued by Start up India (an initiative by Government of India), your start up gets qualified to avail 50% rebate on government fees.
