frequently asked questions

As per the Designs Act, 2000, ‘Design’ means only the features of shape, configuration, pattern or ornament or composition of lines or colour or combination thereof applied to any article whether two dimensional or three dimensional or in both forms, by any industrial process or means, whether manual, mechanical or chemical, separate or combined, which in the finished article appeal to and are judged solely by the eye, but does not include any mode or principle or construction or anything which is in substance a mere mechanical device, and does not include any trademark, as define in clause (v) of sub-section of Section 2 of the Trade and Merchandise Marks Act, 1958, property mark or artistic works as defined under Section 2(c) of the Copyright Act, 1957.
The main objective of the design registration is to safeguard originality of new designs. In many cases, the buying decision is influenced not only by their efficiency but also by their appearance. Thus the key object behind design Registration is to see whether the artisan or creator of a novel design is not deprived of the reward he deserves.
The following type of articles are not applicable to Design registration-
  • Postage stamps,
  • Labels,
  • tokens,
  • cards 
This is because only those designs are considered whose physical existence does exist. Once the alleged Design i.e. ornamentation is removed only a piece of paper, metal or like material remains and the article referred does not exist. The article must have its separate existence independent of the Designs applied to it. 
The design registration gives the registered proprietor a ‘Copyright’ over his design for a certain period. ‘Copyright’ means the sole right to apply a design to the articles belonging to the class for which it is registered.

Initially, the duration of design registration 10 years from the date of registration. In cases where the claim to priority has been allowed, the duration is taken as 10 years from the date of the priority. The initial period of design registration may be extended further to 5 more years on an application before the expiry of the said initial period. 
The date of registration other than the case of priority claim is the actual date of filing the Design registration application. In the case of registration of priority claim, the date of registration is the date of making an application in the reciprocal country.
When an application for of a Design registration is made, it is accepted and a certificate of registration is issued to the applicant soon after the Design registration process. However, a separate request should be made to the Controller for obtaining a certified copy of that certificate for legal proceeding.

The Register of Designs is a document maintained by the Patent Office, Kolkata as a legal requirement. It contains the design number, class number, date of filing (in India) and reciprocity date (if any), name and address of Proprietor and other basic details as that determine the validity of proprietorship of the design.
No. A registered design, cannot be registered again of which the copyright has expired.
If anyone breaches the copyright of a design a penalty of a sum of ₹25,000/- to the registered proprietor subject to a maximum of ₹50,000/-. However, this is recoverable as a contract debt. The registered proprietor may bring a suit for the recovery of the damages for any such violation and for an order against repetition of the same. Total sum recoverable shall be  ₹50,000/-as contract debt.
