Patent Information Centre

A patent is one of the important Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). To facilitate Patent Search and Filing Patent Applications, the Rajiv Gandhi Science and Technology Commission has set up a Patent Information Centre (PIC) for the State of Maharashtra. This facility is supported by the Department of Science & Technology, Government of India, New Delhi, as a part of the national initiative to provide help to scientists, technologists, researchers, innovators, R&D establishments, entrepreneurs, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and individuals in the State who wish to protect their innovations by filing patents.

Main Functions of PIC are as follows:

  • Create awareness about IPRs and enable patent searches in Maharashtra
  • Create IPR Cells (IPCUs) in the State Universities/ Institutes
  • Conduct training programmes and capacity building in IPR related activities
  • Monitor the opportunities and developments in the area of IPR
  • Address the queries related to Patent Search
