Patent can be registered in India according to the Indian Patent Law. A patent can be registered by documenting a patent application with the Indian Patent Office. The patent application can be a common application, National phase application under PCT or a regular application. Generally, an ordinary application is filed with the Indian Patent office to get a patent. A common application does not guarantee a need for some other application. Further, after documenting of a patent application, the patent application is analysed by an examiner of the patent office. After examination of the application, an FER or first examination report is issued by the inspector (examiner) containing a list of complaints, to which a candidate or his approved operator needs to file a reaction. If necessary, the inspector can call a candidate or his specialist for a hearing. Once the analyst is happy with the response documented by a candidate, he may put the application in order for grant.
