What are the criteria of patentability?

An invention is patentable subject matter if it meets the following criteria –

  1. i) It should be novel.
  2. ii) It should have inventive step or it must be non-obvious
  3. iii) It should be capable of Industrial application.
  4. iv) It should not attract the provisions of section 3 and 4 of the Patents Act 1970.

Patent application can be filed either by true and first inventor or his assignee, either alone or jointly with any other person. However, legal representative of any deceased person can also make an application for patent.

An application for a patent can be filed at the earliest possible date and should not be delayed. An application filed with provisional specification, disclosing the essence of the nature of the inventionhelps to register the priority of the invention. Delay in filing an application may entail some risks such as (i) some other inventor might file a patent application on the said invention and (ii) there may be either an inadvertent publication of the invention by the inventor himself/herself or by others independently of him/her.

The list of the forms and process fees is mentioned on the Indian Patent Office website.
