Earlier, in December 2019, the TM Office had issued a Public Notice inviting grievances/suggestions from stakeholders on registering Trade Marks (covered here). The TM Office has now, vide Public Notice dated February 20, 2020, responded to the grievances/suggestions received from the stakeholders.

Suggestions accepted by the TM Office include inter alia publishing (in the Trade Marks Journal) multi-class applications separately in respective lists for the applied-for classes, as against the current practice of it being published  in the list titled “Class 99”, and making the Applicant’s/Opponent’s e-mail addresses visible in the TM Office’s online records. These will be implemented soon.
