FICCI Business Digest - - In the States -

FICCI in as­so­ci­a­tion with In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty Of­fice (IPO), Depart­ment of Com­merce & In­dus­try, Gov­ern­ment of India, or­gan­ised Aware­ness Pro­grammes on 'In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty' for in­dus­try and col­lege on Fe­bru­ary 9-10, 2017 in Jaipur.

Ra­jeeva Swarup, Ad­di­tional Chief Sec­re­tary – MSME, Gov­ern­ment of Ra­jasthan, was the Chief Guest at the pro­gram or­gan­ised for in­dus­try mem­bers. He said that In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty Rights (IPR) is a sub­ject which is of im­mense im­por­tance and rel­e­vance in to­day's times. It is thus im­por­tant to cre­ate aware­ness about the topic. He said that the large en­ter­prises have well es­tab­lished le­gal cells but the medium and small en­ter­prises are not aware about these rights and thus can­not take ad­van­tage of it. Since these days ev­ery­thing is tech­nol­ogy driven and the so­ci­ety is ex­tremely com­pet­i­tive, there is a need to pro­tect in­no­va­tion.

The vi­sion of Na­tional IPR Pol­icy, an­nounced in May 2016, has cat­a­pulted In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty (IP) to the fore­front of the coun­try's eco­nomic strat­egy. FICCI through these Aware­ness Pro­grammes dis­sem­i­nated the spirit of In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty in all its forms and en­cour­aged stake­hold­ers to lever­age In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty (IP) in strength­en­ing the busi­ness land­scape.

G D Bansal, Ad­vo­cate, Ra­jasthan High Court; Dr Ro­hit Jain, Patent & Trade­mark At­tor­ney, Ro­hit Jain & As­so­ciates; Sa­may Raj Meena, Ex­am­iner of Pa­tents & De­signs, IP Of­fice, Gov­ern­ment of India; San­jay Sri­vas­tava, Mem­ber, FICCI Ra­jasthan State Coun­cil & COO, Mahin­dra World City (Jaipur) Ltd; Dr Amar Pat­naik, As­sis­tant Pro­fes­sor, Malaviya Na­tional In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy; Vikas Gupta, Deputy Di­rec­tor, MSME De­vel­op­ment In­sti­tute, Jaipur, were the speak­ers dur­ing the aware­ness pro­grammes.

These pro­grammes aimed at in­spir­ing cre­ativ­ity and in­no­va­tion amongst the par­tic­i­pants by equip­ping them with the knowl­edge of IP, rights of creators & in­no­va­tors, modes of pro­tect­ing IP and ad­van­tages of IP to in­di­vid­u­als and en­trepreneurs.

Ra­jeeva Swarup, Ad­di­tional Chief Sec­re­tary – MSME, Gov­ern­ment of Ra­jasthan.
