Patent trends in ICAR institutes- A Review

Suman, Archna ; Pandey, Divya


There is growing awareness amongst research institutes though comparatively feeble and less competitive than the fierce corporate in filing and protecting their IP rights. We aim to go through and highlight statistics that will help identify and address patent protection matters and related issues. The current study provides a glimpse into the status of patent grants in Indian Council of Agriculture Research (ICAR) institutes. The website of the Office of Controller General of Patents, Designs and trademarks was used to access the patents granted to all the ICAR institutes addressing all forms of plant and animal research and an overview is presented. Areas of agro machinery, agrochemicals, food and dairy technology have the maximum number of innovations patented in the last decade with IARI being the top applicant and grantee.
