A patent can be registered in India as per the Indian Patent Law. A patent can be registered by filing a patent application with the Indian Patent office. The patent application can be ordinary application, National phase application under PCT or a conventional application. Generally an ordinary application is filed with the Indian Patent office to obtain a patent. An ordinary application does not claim a priority from any other application.
Further, after filing of a patent application, the patent application is examined by an examiner of the patent office. After examination of the application, a FER or first examination report is issued by the examiner containing a list of objections, to which an applicant or his authorized agent has to file a response. If needed, the examiner can call an applicant or his agent for a hearing. Once the examiner is satisfied with the response filed by an applicant, he may put the application in order for grant.
