What is the Paris Route in India?

The Paris route is an option that is very similar to PCT. Hence, the Paris Convention allows convenient simultaneous multi-country filing. Paris Convention has 177 Contracting States and is also administered by World Intellectual Property Organization. However, the granting of a patent in the individual contracting country remains under the control of the local patent office. The Paris route offers a relatively faster route as compared to the PCT and it is more economical. You can file an application with your National office first and within 12 months, file an international application. The process is similar to PCT, only it is more direct and relatively faster in contrast with the PCT.
