  • The Opposition Notice is filed in Form No. TM-5 within 3 months from the date of publication of the Trademark with fee of Rs. 2500/- at the Trademark Registry office by the Opponents (in Triplicate).

In new Trademark Rules 2017, for rectification of the register/ counter statement/ refusal or invalidation of a trademark under Geographical Indication of Goods Act, 1999 Form TM-O has to be filed instead of form TM-5.

What is Form TM-O?

Form TM-O includes an application under section 71(1) which is to register a certification Trademark for a specification of goods or services included in a class. TM-O can be filed online which makes the process of trademark registration much easier and faster. This form can be filed by the Proprietor itself, but in the case of critical, cases it is recommended to hire an Attorney who files it on behalf of the proprietor. Any agent also can file a TM-O form on behalf of the owner of the trademark. TM-O is not required to be notarized by any proprietor or owner who is of Indian National. However, any NRI or Foreigner who applies for Trademark registration needs to get the form notarized by designated officials.


Fees for the Form TM-O


Fee for physical filing

Fee for e-filing
