Abstract: Technological solutions are imperative for curbing the menaces of climate change. Thus, development of technology and its transfer have become a crucial component in climate negotiations. Within this grandiose set up, intellectual property rights add a new dimension. It is the constant demand of ‘not so rich nations’ that IPRs should not become a hurdle for transfer and allocation of climate technology. Being the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, India has been proactive in climate talks and now is ready move ahead with clean energy development. However, for India the obvious conundrum is about framing proper policies and legal rules that would enlarge technology transfer scenario. Simultaneously, poverty alleviation and sustainable development have been a long-standing challenge for India. An effective implementation of the Paris Agreement and climate change action plans would certainly strengthen India’s position in international arena in years to come.
