Abstract: The small-scale industries hold a very crucial position in every economy and the Indian economy is no exception. However, in the shifting frames of time, these industries have failed to cope up with the emerging challenges and to keep abreast with the latest developments especially, in the field of IPR. In India, most of these industries are lagging far behind and facing technical obscurity, being unaware about management of their knowledge-based assets like IPR. This paper deals with issues on the future of Small-Scale Industries (SSIs) in India in the present era of globalization and liberalization with the advent of TRIPS. The paper specifically focuses on the SSIs having investment of less than Rs 1 crore and discusses the importance of Indian SSIs in changing economic environment and its implications on small industries. It examines the reasons for protecting intellectual wealth in the present scenario of the economic development in India. It analyses the role of government in making the small enterprises viable and what measures should be and are being taken. The paper also deals with the steps taken for creating IPR culture and suggests the initiatives for SSIs.
