A Provisional Patent application is an interim step on the road to a patent. It is effective because by filing an appropriate provisional patent application a person can market the invention without fear of losing his patent rights, procuring cash to proceed with development and further patent operations. One of the most important legal document while applying for patent registration is provisional specification or complete specification. To increase the chances of obtaining patent registration, a provision specification can be filed along with a patent application if the applicant feels that the invention has reached a stage wherein it can be disclosed on paper, but has not attained the final stage.
The average time taken to file a provisional patent application is about 15 – 20 working days, subject to government processing time and client document submission. Get a free consultation on provisional patent application filing by scheduling an appointment with an IndiaFilings Advisor.
