CGPDTM considers convenience of attorneys for show-cause hearings

The Office of the Controller General Patents, Designs and Trademarks (CGPDTM) has decided to modify the basis of scheduling of the show-cause hearings. The present system is creating inconvenience to the attorneys at large as they are required to attend hearings at appropriate office on frequent basis. Taking note of the same, the CGPDTM has issued a public notice dated April 24, 2018 to change the present scenario.

With effect from June 2018, if more than one application is listed for hearing related to a particular attorney/applicant during the month, they will be clubbed and be fixed on the same date. If matters related to a particular attorney/applicant are found to be more than the daily limit, remaining matters will be fixed for hearing on the very next working day.
