Yes, you can claim priority for an application in India. However, you must submit a certified copy of the priority document within three months of the date of filing of the application. The priority period is 12 months from the earliest priority claimed. It is possible to claim multiple priorities. Domestic priority (based on a previously filed application in India) is also available.
In order to claim priority for an application in India, you must clearly follow certain rules. Your priority document must clearly mention the application reference number of the previous application. Hence, this will ensure that your application gets the priority date.
