Controller Decisions Goes Public

Indian Patent Office (IPO) has lately made Controller’s Decisions public by making an online search provision to search any of his decisions. Visit Indian Patent Office Patent Decision Search link. The search page is not that of global standards but still good enough to search. The decision can be searched using search condition restricted by any of the six options, (1) Patent Number, (2) Section, (3) Opponent, (4) Controller, (5) Application Number, and (6) Applicant Name.

IPO also made search option available for patent applications published under section 11A (18 months publication). Check link. However, search results are restricted to patent bibliographic details (more or less similar to details published in Patent Gazette), not full-text patent applications.
