Abstract: One of the primary steps towards the development and evolution of the national IPR regime could be building the institutions and capacity in various fields related to the IPR area, such as, research and development, enterprise, industry, general administration, and judiciary. A harmonious, efficient and effective institutional mechanism for building capacity and trained human resource would be desirable so to derive full advantage of the Indian IPR regime. There are five central ministries/departments besides two national authorities that oversee the implementation of various IPR legislations in the country. The largest nodal point is the Intellectual Property India, administered by the Patent Office and controlled by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. The Protection of Plant Varieties and Farmers’ Rights in the country is at a juvenile stage and requires building its institutional mechanism and capacity. This paper discusses various issues and priorities related to this legislation with an urge to develop/enhance linkages and working relations between the PPV&FR Authority/ Registry and Intellectual Property India as well as other nodal agencies/R&D organizations.
