The Patent Act - November 1st, 2010

The Patent Act


1. The Patent Act, 1970 came into force on 20.4.1972 replacing Indian Patents and Designs Act, 1911. When India became independent, the Govt. of India appointed the Patent Enquiry Committee .
The Patent Bill, 1965 based mainly on his
recommendations and incorporating a few changes, in particular relating to Patents for food, drug, medicines, was introduced in the lower house of Parliament on 21st September, 1965

The Patents Act, 1970 in comparison with Indian Patents and Designs Act, 1911 has far more reaching effect in some areas such as food, Drug and
Medicines where all the patents granted under this category and deemed to be endorsed with the words “License of Right”.

The chapter XXII provides international arrangements with the countries outside India, which afford to the applicants for Patents in India or citizens of India, similar privileges as are granted to its own citizens in respect of grant of Patent and the protection of their patent rights
