    Online Trademark Renewal in India

    A trademark (also known as a brand name) may be a name, signature, word, letter, numeral, symbol, logo, device, packaging labels, tagline, the shape of goods, or any combination thereof to distinguish it from other similar goods or services originating from another seller. It is a distinctive sign which identifies certain goods or services as those produced or provided by a specific person or enterprise.

    All the Intellectual Property Rights including Trademarks are registered for a given period of time and duration. Under the Trademark Act 1999, a trademark issued to any establishment is valid for up to 10 years. However, it can be renewed for a period of 10 years by following due procedure of law. The procedure of trademark renewal is similar to trademark registration. If the renewal application along with required documents is filed within due time, then the trademark is further renewed for a period of 10 years by the Trademark Registrar.

    Time Limit for Trademark Renewal in India

    • There is a specified deadline for submitting the trademark renewal application as per the Trademark Law.
    • The renewal period shall start 1 year before the date of expiration of a trademark and can extend till the date of expiration of the trademark.
    • A notice will be sent by the Registrar of Trademarks 6 months before the date of expiration informing the applicant about the deadline.
    • Trademark shall be renewed before the date of expiration by paying a renewal fee of Rs. 10,000 (Physical Filing) or Rs. 9000 (Online Filing) for a period of 10 years.
    • Trademark can also be renewed within 6 months from the date of expiration by paying a surcharge of Rs. 5000 (Physical Filing) or Rs. 4500 (Online Filing) in addition to renewal fees, failing to which the trademark shall be removed from Register.

    Advantages of Online Trademark Renewal in India

    • Maintaining Exclusivity of Brand name

      Once the trademark is registered, the owner of the trademark enjoys exclusive rights over it. Trademark renewal ensures continuity of exclusive ownership in respect of registered trademark and can be used for various goods/services for a period of 10 more years. Further, the owner can prevent the unauthorized or illegal use of his brand name or logo. If anyone wants to use a registered trademark, he has to obtain prior approval from the owner.

    • Legal protection 

      A registered trademark will not only protect unauthorized use of a brand name or logo but shall also give the power to take legal action against infringement or misuse of a brand name or logo by any person or competitor. Further, the owner of a registered trademark can claim appropriate damages and compensation from the person who has infringed his trademark.

    • Avoid the Tedious Registration Process

      While registering a trademark, an applicant has to go through the tedious process such as filing a trademark application, reply to any objection raised by the examiner, attend the hearing (if any), counter the oppositions, and then proceed with registration. While the trademark renewal is a continuation of an already registered trademark and the owner has to just file an application and pay the required fees to get it renewed.

    • Retains Goodwill and Prestige

      A registered trademark can be used for building a franchise model, it can be sold, rented, assigned, or transferred to any person. Therefore, trademark renewal helps in retaining the goodwill and prestige associated with the brand.

    Restoration of Trademark

    • It may happen sometimes, that an applicant/owner of trademark may forget to renew his trademark within the specified time, after which the Registrar of Trademark has removed his trademark from the register.

    • In such a case, the applicant can apply for restoration of the trademark after 6 months and within 1 year from the date of expiration by paying a surcharge of Rs. 10,000 (Physical Filing) or Rs. 9000 (Online Filing) in addition to renewal fees.

    • However, it is important to note that restoration of a trademark can be done only within 1 year from the date of expiration of the trademark.

    • The renewal shall be made for a period of 10 years from the date of expiration of the trademark.

    • Once, the restoration option is expired, then the applicant has to re-apply his trademark as a fresh application and go through the registration process again.
