2. Registering a trademark

Trademark registration was established in 1940 and the Trademark Act was passed in 1999. Currently, the trademark register operates as the body or active body of the Act. Or it could be said that they work together. As a functional body, the trademark register applies all the rules and regulations of the trademark law in India.

The headquarters of the trademark register is in Jaipur and has branch offices in Delhi, Ahmedabad, Chennai, and Kolkata. When a trademark is registered, it is registered under the Commercial Act, 1999 and the trademark register registers it. In this process, the register will check whether the registration mark meets all the requirements of the Act prior to registration.
