INDIA - New Patent Act - The ControversiesWritten by P.M.George Kutty
India finally amended its Patents Act and Rules to become fully compliant with TRIPS on 26th Decemer 2004 by an Ordinance and followed by Act being passed in January 2005. The black box applications filed under WTO brand from 1/1/1995 were opened for processing. Even though amendment opens all areas of technolgy in respect of product patents, some controversies have been created in interpretation of amendments. Product patent applications in field of food and chemicals in general which have been filed before 1/1/2005 and are under process have been denied product protection and restricted to process patent only.The patent office view is that since Act before amendment, by section 5(1)(b) was not allowing product patent, amendment can be effected for product patent in these fields only for applications filed after 1/1/2005. Of course in case of black box applications in filed of drugs product patents are being granted.
