Abstract: Post TRIPS and WTO India’s journey to intellectual property compliance has not been an easy one. In particular patent reform has been triggered by panel rulings against India in the dispute settlement body that articulate the ambivalent approach followed by the government. ¹ As there is some evidence of the tumultuous activity at the government level², it is worthwhile to examine patent activity effectively taking place. A patent is granted by the national patent office as patent law is territorial in its application while the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) administers Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) provides for the filing of a single international patent application which has the same effect as national applications filed in several designated countries. Patent activity may be examined in a number of ways: Study of industry that is involved in patenting, information from the patent office, etc. In this paper, an analysis of the activity of patent agents’ has been undertaken to determine the extent and type of patent activity taking place in the country.
