Design renewal


The renewal can only be done after the expiration of the original time period of 10 years of the registration of design. The Controller does the renewal of design after the registered proprietor fulfills all the requirements.   The renewal and restoration of design in India are provided for securing the exclusive rights of the registered proprietor of a design. The proprietor is given the opportunity to save the rights associated with his/her design and protect the design from infringement.
