Registered trademark is applicable solely for a period of 10 years. To retain the rights that come along trademark registration, businesses need to renew the trademark prior to its expiry. Failing to do trademark renewal may end up to losing the rights over the existing trademark. One can follow the procedure prescribed below for trademark renewal in India.
Post filing the trademark renewal online, you need to periodically check the status of the application during its processing state. At times, you will need to address various time-bound actions to complete the procedure. So, it is important to check the status continually until the registration is renewed.
Even if you miss out filing the trademark renewal application before the expiry, the Registrar will send an intimation corresponding to your trademark renewal. However, the intimation will be received only a short while prior to the renewal deadline.
Failing further will end up in losing the trademark registration.
