During the term of main patent, separate renewal fee is not required to be paid for the Patent of Addition.

    Patent of addition expires along with the main patent. However, if the main patent is revoked, the patent of addition is converted into an independent patent, if so requested by the patentee and same renewal fee shall be payable upon the same dates as if the patent has been originally granted as an independent patent.

The date of filing of a divisional application is same as that of the main application, from which it has been divided.

    The request for examination in case of divisional application is to be filed within 48 months from the date of filing or priority of the parent application or within six months from the date of filing the divisional application, whichever expires later.

    The term of patent for a divisional application is reckoned from the date of filing of main application or international filing date in case the application was divided out of National phase application under PCT.
