Abstract: There is an old Latin saying ‘Do ut des’, which means give and you will be given; the principle of reciprocity. The topic of this paper is something similar to this saying. The Patent Offices invite applicants/ inventors to sufficiently disclose information pertinent to invention in a patent specification for grant of a patent. This paper highlights importance of providing sufficient information in a patent specification before filing with any Patent Office. It also analyses sections in Indian Patents Act, 1970, pertaining to ‘sufficiency of disclosure’ by citing case laws. In addition, a comparative analysis between Indian, US and European patent law towards this aspect is done. The implications of not providing information in patent specification are highlighted and certain aspects which need to be considered by applicants/ inventors before filing the invention with Patent Office are recommended.
