Authors: Pillai, Manoj
Keywords: TRIPS compliant
inventive step
new inventions
Swiss-type ‘new use’ claims

Issue Date: May-2005
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: The main objective behind the introduction and passing of the Patents (Amendment) Bill, 20051 was to meet India’s deadline, 31 December 20042, to comply with the TRIPS Agreement. While the Ordinance attempted to make the Indian patents law TRIPS compliant rather literally, the Patents (Amendment) Act, 2005 (hereinafter ‘the Act’) deviated from the Ordinance in certain fundamental respects. This note analyses the difference in the ‘language of law’ between the Ordinance and ‘the Act’. An attempt has also been made to analyse the implications of the amendments proposed in the Act to ascertain if the Act makes the Indian patents law TRIPS compliant.
