Abstract: The paper primarily focuses on the role of government in capacity building in India. Publicly funded institutions in India are driven by social obligations rather than economic considerations. Though this approach has created a pool of highly educated people at the same time being an insulated system, it breeds complacency leading to very little development in the IP scenario. However, post WTO, several useful changes have taken place and the Indian system has risen to the challenge of TRIPS compliance by enacting new legislations. With the far-reaching effects of IPR, capacity building is a primary activity and the role of the government in capacity building in management of IPR is fundamental and of utmost importance. No exercise at the national level can succeed if all or most players are not engaged in the activity. The Patent Facilitating Cell at Technology Forecasting and Assessment Council (TIFAC) set up by the Department of Science and Technology, India, addresses this very need of awareness creation among scientists and also provides full technical, legal and financial support for inventors from educational institutions and government departments.
