Automated process for Generation and Issuance of Patent Certificates

The Indian Patent Office [IPO] on 3rd July 2017 has issued a public notice confirming generation and issuance of Patent Certificates has been fully automated.

Henceforth, the IPO will issue only  Electronic Patent certificates to the applicants or their authorised agents through email and will be available through website for print.

We welcome this move as same will help IPO in achieving its goal of maximized automation and streamlining of internal processes.
