Like how we all take care of our property, taking care of intellectual property is also essential. Innovating a new product or a new process or a new use takes lot of energy, time and money. After investing on this, the end result has to be safeguarded. This is what Indian Government is identifying now and giving us the security. This gives me lot of confidence in commercializing my products to customers. The customers, who are formulating to finished products, are confident when we give them the exclusive patent rights to consumers.”
He added, “Patent protection and recognition encourages the “brains” to innovate new products, new concepts. This will induce the growth in every aspect. Indian brain is challengingly strong & the Indian innovations will dominate the globe with a strong impact.”
