The cost of trademark registration is not easy to predict as the process of Trademark Registration involves multiple stages. For a better understanding of the overall cost of the trademark registration, we advise you to understand the whole procedure of Registration of Trademark completely. The significant stages are the search of a trademark in a public database followed by its filing and subsequent examination of the trademark application by the examiners of the trademark at the office of the Trade Mark Registry. Having said that there are two important components to the cost of Trademark Registration, the first is Government Fee and the second is the service charges which you have to pay to the facilitating agency/Trademark Attorney.
The Government Fee: The Trade Mark Rules 2017 prescribes the amount of fee to be paid to the office of the registrar of trademark along with an application. Please refer to the First Schedule of Trademark Rules 2017. It is further prescribed under rule 11(5) & 25(19) that the government fee payable to the trademark office/registry may be paid online through the payment gateway provided at the website (ipindia.gov.in) of the Controller General Patents, Designs & Trade Marks. The applicant also has the option to pay the prescribed fee by way of Demand Draft or Cash at the counters of the Trademark Office.
The Consultant or Attorney Fee: In general the filing and representations of the trademark application(s) are done by a trademark attorney, the professional fee is a very subjective matter and depends on the facts and circumstances of each such trademark application.
