Abstract: Trade secret forms the core of all industrial activities, but as an IPR in the true sense is found in textbooks on intellectual property. In practice it still remains a secret for our intellectual property regime which has been indiscriminate in affording it any protection. It is yet to unveil itself; people are yet to realize its potential as an IPR. Regardless of the fact that trade secrets remain neglected they have distinguished advantages over other IPR. This paper analyses these advantages which it can accrue to country like India and provides how these advantages can be exploited effectively. It also analyses new developments in the field of trade secrets and their legal protection in India. The contemporaneous conditions in India are conducive and compelling to have a statutory law on trade secrets, even courts have also seen increased trade secret litigation in the recent past. Hence the paper suggests legislative protection of trade secrets and possible ingredients of such law.
