How much does it cost to get a PCT National Phase Patent in India
Our professional and administrative fee for filing one READY TO FILE National Phase/Conventional Patent application in India is (A) US$ 400. This includes attorney fees, stationery and printing fees as well as handling fees.
The Patent Office filing fee is:
(B) US$150 for a large legal entity, US$75 for a small legal entity and US$35 for an individual applicant. This is for a specification up to 30 pages with 10 claims. Extra pages fee and claims fee would be applicable for a longer specification.
The Patent Office Examination fee is:
(C) US$375 for a large legal entity, US$185 for a small legal entity and US$75 for an individual applicant.
We charge different fees for various actions needed to be performed while prosecuting the application at the Patent Office. A typycal office action would cost you about US$150, while attending a hearing with examiner would be US$300.
Alternatively we offer you an option of paying a total of (D) US$1125 as professional fees for prosecuting an application up to grant. In this option we commit ourselves to prosecute the application at the Patent office till grant for a fix one time fee of US$1125 and thereby protect you from making any unforeseen payment.
Thus the two options are:
1. Attorney fees for filing (A) US$400 + Patent Office fees + Action based fee for prosecuting the application till grant/final disposal of the case.
2. ONE time fixed Attorney fees of (D) US$1125 + Patent Office fees + NO further fees for prosecuting the application till grant/final disposal of the case (Recommended).
We shall give you an exact fee quote after you provide the information about the number of total pages/claims.
The National Phase/Conventional Patent application in India consists of a set of forms along with a copy of Complete Specification including the description, claims, drawings and abstract. A POA from the inventor accompanies the application. One can enter National Phase in India within 31 months in case of a PCT application. These documents need to be in ENGLISH.
We would require:
1. Name, address and nationality of applicants and inventors.
2. Complete Specification in ENGLISH (in text format).
3. The drawings in PDF/JPG foramt.
4. The certified copy of the priority documents would NOT be required for a PCT application.
Do provide the applicant details to enable us to prepare the (Power of Attorney form) POAs as per the requirements of Intellectual Property office of India; we shall then send the POAs for signing to you. A POA needs to be stamped by a Govt. agency after paying the appropriate fee and then it is to be signed by the applicant. The Patent/Trademark Office allows the POA to be filed at a later stage during the prosecution of the application and there is no late fee or any penalty associated with such later filing.
