The trademark registration process is same all over the India. You can register your trademark in Maharashtra by following the same steps as you follow to register the trademark in India.

Trademark Registration Process

Step 1: Trademark research

In the initial stage, you need to do the proper research before selecting a trademarkfor your business. You need to identify the class and availability of the trademark with the registry.

Step 2: TM form filing

Once the uniqueness is achieved in mark, you need to file an application in form TM-A with the registrar for registration of a trademark with the requisite fee and documents. After filing the application, the company can use the symbol ‘TM’ until the trademark approved.

Step 3: Allotment of application number

Step 4: Examination of application

After trademark application filed at the trademark registrar office who has the jurisdiction over the state, trademark examiner check the trademark application in accordance with the provisions of Trademark Act. The registrar may accept or object the application on the relative or absolute grounds.

You need to file the reply within30 days counted from the day of receiving the examination report. Non filing of the reply leads to abandon the trademark application.

Step 7: Advertisement of trademarks journal

If no objection is raised by the registrar the or in case of objection, satisfied with the reply, the trademark registrar will publish the mark in trademark journal. The filed trademark application is advertised in trademark journal to invite the public to oppose for the mark.

Step 8: Opposition (if any)

After publishing the trademark the third party have an opportunity to raise the objection within 90 days from the date of publication. If the third party opposed the trademark application then both the parties have the chance to appear at the hearing.

Step 9: Certificate of registration

When objections and oppositions (if any) are satisfied which are raised by the examiner or third party, then trademark registration certificate issued to the applicant. Registration of the trademark granting the exclusive use to the owner of the registered trademark. For registered trademark symbol ‘R’ has to be used.

The main purpose of a trademark is to help the consumer recognize the source of a particular good or service. The source, in turn, helps people determine the quality as that is what consumers usually base their purchase decisions on. This is why a trademark is of extreme importance in the economy.

The brand value of the trademark owner is represented by a Trade Mark. Trade Marks prevents dishonest individuals/groups from taking undue advantage of a person’s work and traversing credit away from the actual user/creator and hence are an integral part of the use of goods and utilization of services.
