Our professional and administrative fee for filing one READY TO FILE National Phase/Conventional Patent application in India is (A) ₹20000. This includes attorney fee, stationery and printing fee as well as handling fee.
The Patent Office filing fee is:

We charge different fees for various actions needed to be performed while prosecuting the application at the Patent Office. A typical office action would cost you about ₹11000, while attending a hearing with examiner would be ₹20000.
Alternatively we offer you an option of paying a total of (D) ₹65000 as professional fee for prosecuting an application up to grant. In this option we commit ourselves to prosecute the application at the Patent office till grant for a fix one time fee of ₹65000 and thereby protect you from making any unforeseen payment.
Thus the two options are:
1. Attorney fee for filing (A) ₹20000 + Patent Office fee + Action based fee for prosecuting the application till grant/final disposal of the case.
2. ONE time fixed Attorney fee of (D) ₹65000 + Patent Office fee + NO further fee for prosecuting the application till grant/final disposal of the case (Recommended).
We shall give you an exact fee quote after you provide the information about the number of total pages/claims.
The National Phase/Conventional Patent application in India consists of a set of forms along with a copy of Complete Specification including the description, claims, drawings and abstract. A POA from the inventor accompanies the application. One can enter National Phase in India within 31 months in case of a PCT application. These documents need to be in ENGLISH.
We would require:
1. Name, address and nationality of applicants and inventors.
2. Complete Specification in ENGLISH (in text format).
3. The drawings in PDF/JPG format.
4. The certified copy of the priority documents would NOT be required for a PCT application.
Do provide the applicant details to enable us to prepare the (Power of Attorney form) POAs as per the requirements of Intellectual Property office of India; we shall then send the POAs for signing to you. A POA needs to be stamped by a Govt. agency after paying the appropriate fee and then it is to be signed by the applicant. The Patent/Trademark Office allows the POA to be filed at a later stage during the prosecution of the application and there is no late fee or any penalty associated with such later filing.
