Legal Issues Seminar-General IP (LIS-GIP) On “Is There A Limitation On The Registrar’s Power To Condone Delays In Contentious Proceedings?”

Featuring: Anurathna Mathivanan

A ‘Legal Issues Seminar- General IP’ (LIS-GIP) was conducted by Anurathna Mathivanan, Trainee Associate on “Is There a Limitation on the Registrar’s Power to Condone Delays in Contentious Proceedings?”. The seminar explored relevant provisions under the Trade Marks Act, 1999, and the Trade Marks Rules, 2017 and the divergent views taken by courts on the limits of the Registrar’s discretionary power to allow requests for extension of time in contentious trademark matters. The session concluded with an interesting discussion on whether the exercise of this discretionary power by the Registrar is in conformity with the principles of natural justice and whether there is a need for comprehensive guidelines to ensure uniformity in the exercise of the Registrar’s power.
