As regards the pendency of patent applications, it is intimated that as per the provisions of Section 11(B) of the Patents Act, 1970, the applicant is required to file the request for examination within 48 months of the filing of application. As such, the pendency of patent applications awaiting disposal is decided on the basis of pendency of requests for examination filed in respect of patent applications.

           

The details of the pending Requests of Examination in respect of Indian legal entities in medicines as on 31-01- 2013 are as under:-

As regards the reasons for delay, the grant of a patent is a quasi-judicial process and tends to be time consuming as it involves various steps inter-alia, publication of the applications, filing of request for examination, examination of the applications and disposal of any pre-grant opposition filed. In addition, substantive increase in filing of patent applications by more than 250% in the last 10 years and also the relative shortage of patent examiners have been other reasons for increase in pendency.

 

               The figures given below show that the Indian share in respect of filing of patent applications is increasing.
