Why is it required for Trademark Registration in India?

As per the amendments in the Trademark Rules 2017, the new fee structure for filing of the application for trademark registration in India has been revised to the following:

  • For Individuals or Proprietorship Firms the fee remains at – Rs 4,500/- [Per Application Per Class]
  • For any type of Company [Partnership, Pvt Ltd, Ltd etc] – Rs 9,000/- [Per Application Per Class]

This is where Udyog Aadhar Registration comes into play.

  • For companies having Udyog Aadhar Registration – Rs 4,500/- [Per Application Per Class]
