A trademark is valid for a period of 10 years from the date of filing of application and on the expiry of a trademark it is necessary to get the trademark renewed. Non-renewal of trademark leads to its removal from the Trademark Register.
The owner of the trademark can file for the renewal of the trademark by themselves or through an agent associated or any person having their power of attorney.
The renewal of a trademark is to be filed anytime within a year before expiration of the trademark, or six months after its expiration. The Registrar sends a reminder notice 6 months prior to the expiry of the mark and again before 1-2 months prior to the expiry. Upon non-compliance or non-renewal of the mark by the applicant, the Registrar publishes in the journal regarding the same and strikes off the mark from the Register after its expiry. The trademark can still be restored on being struck off by the process of Trademark Restoration.
The restoration shall be done by submitting a renewal request through Form TM-R after 6 months and within 1 year from the expiration date of the trademark.
