Filing the application

The application can be filed directly by the Applicant or its assignee or its attorney/agent in the prescribed form. The details that are required in the application form include the name, address and nationality of the rights holder; the class in which the design is to be filed; representation of the design; name of articles to which the design is to be applied; address for service in India and priority details in case the rights holder is claiming priority from a Paris Convention application. The application has to be signed by the Applicant or their attorney/agent.
The designs under the Indian law have been categorized in separate classes in order to provide for systematic registration. An International classification of Industrial Designs according to the Locarno Agreement is followed in India and this classification of goods is based upon the function of the goods. Presently there are 32 classes (Classes 1 to 31 and 99), which are further divided into sub-classes.

Review by Designs Office

After the application has been filed, the Patent Office reviews it to ensure that it is complete in all respects and thereafter allots an application number to the application.

Examination of the Application

During the process of examination, the Patent Office determines if the design is barred for registration. Accordingly, it may issue a statement of objections and the Applicant must respond to the objections that have been raised within a period of three months from the official communication of objection. Should the Applicant not respond to the objections within this time frame, the Applicant is deemed to have withdrawn its application. Thereafter, based on the response to the objections that have been filed by the Applicant, the Controller of Designs determines if the application should be refused, accepted or put up for a hearing. Should the application be rejected, the Applicant may appeal the order of the Controller of Designs at the High Court.

Registration

Following acceptance of an application, the Controller of Designs may direct the registration of the design. The particulars of the application and the representation of the articles to which the design has been applied will be published in the Official Gazette. After the registration of the design, the particulars are entered in the Register of Designs. Typically it takes about 6 to 12 months for the design to be registered.

Term of Designs Registration

A design registration is valid for a period of 10 years from the date of registration. This is renewable for a period of 5 years.
