What is a Provisional Patent?

As a patent can be so crucial in maintaining a business advantage, many inventors/businesses wish to patent their inventions even before they are finalised. This is possible through a provisional patent, which helps the inventor establish earliest ownership over the invention on submission of the provisional specifications of the product or process. As India follows the first-to-file system, this would ensure that the holder of the provisional patent would also be granted the permanent patent. The documents for the permanent patent would, however, have to be filed within 12 months or else the application would be abandoned entirely.

Advantages of Provisional Patent

Minimal Information Needed
Even if your invention is at a conceptual stage, all you need is to specify the title, indicate the field of your invention, its nature and potential uses to file a provisional specification.

Established Right Early
The provisional patent enables you to book your name against your invention even before it is final. The patent is awarded to the person who files it first, rather than the person who invents it first.

Assess Market Potential
The provisional specification helps you can assess the market potential of your invention before taking the final plunge and filing a complete specification.
