The companies that want to safeguard technological innovations apply for Industrial Design patents. For qualifying as an industrial design one must develop something that is unique and distinct. Industrial design requires a novelty period of 1 year before filing the application. The application for an industrial design is examined by Patent Institute and thereafter it is registered. The registration information is released in Official Designs Bulletin. If no objection is received in 6 months the registration is made permanent. However, if any objection by a third party entity is proved to be justified the design registration is thought to be canceled. It provides a 5 year protection. One can renew it for a maximum of 5 times
