National Phase: What happens to my application in India and abroad?

Once your application enters the national phase, the national or regional patent Offices begin the process of determining as to grant you the patent or not. Now, the national phase entry often depends on the filing route as well. There are 2 broad options, which are Patent Co-operation Treaty and Paris Convention.

Let’s consider the example of PCT. The PCT route provides you with an international search report, the written opinion of ISA and sometimes an international preliminary examination report. These make the examination easier for the concerned offices. Further, the granting of the patent application in every country is in the hands of the respective patent office. You might get a grant in one country but another country might reject your application (along with certain valid reasons).
