When does the applicant for registration of design get the registration certificate?

When an application for registration of a design is in order, it is accepted and registered, then a certificate of registration is issued to the applicant.

However, a separate request should be made to the Controller for obtaining a certified copy of the certificate for legal proceedings with requisite fee.

Register of Designs – The Register of Designs is a document maintained by the Patent Office, Kolkata as a statutory requirement.

It contains the design number, date of filing and reciprocity date (if any), name and address of proprietor and such other matters as would affect the validity of proprietorship of the design and it is open for public inspection on payment of prescribed fee and extract from register may also be obtained on request with the prescribed fee.

Duration of the registration of a design – The term of a registered design is 15 years. Initially the right is granted for a period of 10 years, which can be extended, by another 5 years by making an application and paying a fee of Rs. 2000/- to the Controller before the expiry of initial 10 years period.

The proprietor of design may make application for such extension as soon as the design is registered.
