Procedure for become a patent agent with science and law deg


Can anybody let me know as how to register as a petent agent having a science background and law degree without patent agent exam.

As of now i have noticed as below.

1. High court of Madras has given the judgement as person having the Science background with law degree are eligible to become the patent agent without taking the patent agent exam.

2. Somebody has filed a RTI for the same and patent board has not come with response and stated only they will go for an appeal to SC.

Has anybody registered as a petent agent without writing the patent exam?

if anybody has updates/latest information and procedure to register without taking the patent agent exam.

please let me know...

Thanks

Arun

Interesting query Arun and I would also be interested in knowing the latest status.  I had put a detailed blog on this at :

http://lawforall.in/patent-agents-exam/

the latest AFAIK :

"HOWEVER, the decision was appealed by the Controller of Patents after some delay as elaborated hereunder. (vide Writ Appeal No. 532 of 2014 )"

Whether that means a STAY on HC ruling or not I don't know.

Maybe seniors here could advise/comment. Many Thanks
