    Section 8 Requirements at the Indian Patent Office

    Recent Court, IPAB (Intellectual Property Appellate Board)
    and Patent Office decisions in India vis-à-vis compliance
    with Section 8 requirements under the Indian Patents Act
    has brought this section into a sharp focus and has
    become the bête-noir of many applicants/patentees. This
    section requires the applicant to inform the Patent Office
    regarding filings in other jurisdictions corresponding to the
    same or substantially the same invention as filed in India.
    There is a stipulated time frame for filing such information.
    In addition to that the applicant is required to keep the
    Patent Office informed about the processing of such
    applications during the pendency of the application in India
    up till the grant. Keeping in view the gravity this issue has
    attained, we have prepared a short note that will help
    explain the requirements under this section.
