Provisional Application Frequently Asked Questions

Filing the preliminary specification is the first step towards the complete specification. When you have all of the information on your invention, you may go on to the complete specification. • When a person registers their patent under the Indian Patent Act, 1970, they can protect their patents or intellectual property. Obtaining a patent prevents other people or organizations from infringing on their creative idea. • A detailed description of the innovation and its specifications is required in order to obtain a complete patent. Even if a person is involved in Research and Development (R&D) and does not have a fully formed patentable design or process, they may obtain a provisional patent to protect their work. • A provisional specification is typically filed in conjunction with a patent application in order to achieve a priority date for the application above any other application filed in respect of the same invention being developed. • A Provisional Patent is not a patent in and of itself. It will not be expanded into a full patent application. For your invention, you might add a “Patent Pending” tag. You have secured the time for filing a complete specification by filing a provisional patent.
• Ensure filing date: A significant benefit of filing a provisional patent is that it provides security and interim protection to the applicant until they seek a complete patent. The applicant has 12 months to file the complete specification. • Priority date: Filing a provisional application ensures that your priority date is guaranteed. This allows you to work on your innovation and file the complete specification. • Analyze the market: Filing a provisional application allows you to study the market and perform market research to confirm the invention's marketability. • Abandonment scope: If an inventor files a provisional specification and later decides that the product generated is not commercially feasible and chooses not to obtain a patent, the provisional specification can be readily abandoned. • Low cost: Filing a provisional application costs lesser than filing a complete patent application. • Generate income: The inventor can use the "Patent Pending" or "Patent Applied" tag once the provisional patent specification has been filed. When the principal business model is progressed, this tag will assist in receiving money as the invention's credibility grows.
For filing provisional patent specification the following documents are required: • Form 1 (Application for granting patent) • Form 2 (provisional specifications) • Form 5 (Declaration of inventorship) • Form 26(Power of attorney) • E-filing fees (Statutory fee) • Form 3 (Corresponding declaration concerning foreign patent application) • Priority document (convention application if the priority date is affirmed) • Illustration/Diagrams of the invention.
