India: Delhi High Court Addresses Wrongful Abandonment of Trademark Applications

The Delhi High Court has stayed all orders of wrongful abandonment of trademark applications issued by the Trade Marks Registry post on March 20, 2016. This comes after more than 165,000 applications were reportedly abandoned by the registry last month.  To ensure that the circumstances of the last few weeks do not reoccur, the court has directed the Trademarks Registry not to abandon any applications without notice to applicants through physical post.
