A trademark in India refers to a word, a symbol, a name or any combination between these, to represent the identity of a brand operating on the local market. Those who want to register a company in India and to protect the intellectual property rights associated with their company should know that trademarks are regulated under the Trade Marks Act 1999, administered by the Trade Mark Registry. Our team of specialists in company formation in India can provide in-depth assistance on the manner in which a company can register a local trademark
 

Types of trademarks available on the Indian market 
 

Investors who want to open a company in India will need to be represented by a trademark. The trademark is required to have unique characteristics on the Indian territory and, under the applicable legislation on this domain, trademarks can refer to the following:
 
a name (including the name of a person);
an invented word or a real word

Registration requirements for Indian trademarks 
 

The registration of an Indian trademark is handled by the Trade Marks Registry, located in Mumbai and other major cities in India. The exact office where a company should register depends on its place of incorporation. The applicant will need to fill out a form providing information on the trademark and to pay a fee. 
 
The representatives of the Trade Marks Registry will analyze the application and will issue a report in a period of maximum three months since the date the file was submitted. Our team of consultants in company registration in India can offer further advice on the documents that are to be submitted in this case. 
 
India has 45 classes of trademarks, representing all the business fields available on the local market. The company’s representatives should choose the most appropriate classes. It is also important to know that the trademark registration is available for a period of 10 years and, upon expiration, the trademark’s owner can renew the application for other 10 years.

Persons interested in more details on the intellectual property rights can contact our team of agents in company formation in India for advice and legal assistance.
