IN­DIA UNVEILS ITS FIRST IN­TEL­LEC­TUAL PROP­ERTY POL­ICY

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE -

NEW DELHI: In­dia un­veiled a com­pre­hen­sive In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty Rights (IPR) pol­icy aimed at fos­ter­ing in­no­va­tion, cut­ting de­lays in clear­ing patent, trade­mark and copy­right ap­pli­ca­tions, pro­tect­ing tra­di­tional knowl­edge and en­cour­ag­ing en­trepreneur­ship. The Na­tional In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty Rights pol­icy, which the Cabi­net ap­proved on Fri­day, will likely now bring In­dia’s IP regime in line with global stan­dards and help im­prove its rank­ing in the World Bank’s Ease of Do­ing Busi­ness in­dex.
