Trademark Registration is a process which involves several checks which are essentially to be passed for a successful registration. Once a trademark application is filed, the Trade Marks Registrar would process the application and issue an Examination Report. Among the outcomes, the Trademark Examination Report could allow for the trademark application to be advertised before registration or the Trademark Examiner could raise an objection for registration of the mark.
In cases wherein an objection for registration of a trademark is raised by the registrar, the applicant has an opportunity to submit a written reply for the objection raised. The reply to the Trademark Examination Report should contain reasons, facts and evidences answering why the mark should be registered in favour of the applicant. If the Trademark Examiner finds the reply sufficient and addresses all the concerns raised in the Examination Report, the application would be allowed to be published in the Trademark Journal, before registration.
