Pravin Anand, Managing Partner, Anand and Anand mentioned that internationally ‘Brexit’ has been an issue which has impacted the Intellectual Property Rights. He added that patent filing in recent times have been dominated by Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT) and Renewable Energy. He further complimented the Government for bringing the National IPR Policy which has been beneficial especially for start-ups in the form of reduction in patent filing fee, tax rebates as well as provision of facilitators for filing of trademarks and patents.


Dr. A. K. Garg said over the past 3 years, there has been a policy domain in place which is more inclusive where government, industry and citizen are working towards a goal of making India a better place. He mentioned that initially IPR was not considered very important in India as economic growth was centred on finding solutions to common things by getting technology across borders and implementing them for providing basic needs to citizens. Due to ICT sector witnessing exponential growth in India, a plethora of technology oriented startups have emerged. He added that 4 startups are born in India everyday of which 80% are from the ICT sector.
