Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) protection plays a key
role in gaining an advantageous position in the competitive technology game for
achieving economic growth. Uttar Pradesh enjoys large scientific human resources
in India with state of the art research and technology centres and scientific
establishments in the country Lucknow, the capital of the state of Uttar Pradesh
is an acclaimed centre of Research in leading areas of science and technology.
Thus information on various Research and technological advancements should be
disseminated to the users of technology in order for our country to develop
faster. Thus a culture to make aware of development of research and technology
to pertinent users is essential. This has become more pronounced in the
globalised economy with international agreements and obligations in the fields
of IPR in the WTO regime. Huge information is to be provided while filing a
patent application in order to ensure full disclosure of the invention. Thus,
the patent information provides the large single source of technical information
in the world today. However, access to this information and other facilities
related to IPR are really inadequately available in the academic and other
institutions in India.
As a first step in this direction to provide patent related
services particularly to the S&T community, Intellectual Property Rights
Management Cell (IPRMC) started functioning at Integral University,
Lucknow under guidance and help of Council for Science and Technology,
Government of Uttar Pradesh - a few months back. The cell under the Center
for Career Guidance & Development(CCG&D), started functioning as a service
centre to render IPR related services among S & T community.
IPRMC intends to provide information, orientation and
facilities to scientists and research fellows/scholar of Integral University and
its collaborating institutions/universities for protecting the products of their
intellectual powers. The Cell would also be able to guide and advise researchers
on how to obtain and sustain patents, facilitate routing of patent searches to
Patent Information Centre (PIC) and getting the necessary clearances from the
competent authorities in the university while filing provisional/complete patent
specifications. This Cell would also workout various modalities on behalf of the
University for Technology transfer/commercialization of patented technologies.

reputation or other characteristics of such goods is essentially attributable to
its geographical origin.
design of integrated circuits : Layout
Design of Integrated Circuit includes a layout of transistors and other
circuitry elements and includes lead wires connecting such elements and
expressed in any manner in a semiconductor integrated circuit (IC), designed to
perform an electronic circuitry function.
secrets: Trade Secret, also
referred as undisclosed information, includes formula, pattern, compilation,
programme, device, method, technique or process. It is perhaps the most
important form of protection for industries and R&D institutions.
variety protection: Plant Variety
Protection and Farmer’s Rights (PVPFR) is a system for protection of plant
varieties, the rights of farmers and plant breeders and to encourage the
development of new varieties of plants. Criteria for protection a new plant
variety are distinctness, uniformity, stability, novelty and appropriate
denomination (generic designation).
Vision and Activities of IPRMC
To provide essential assistance and
necessary facilities to the IU fraternity to derive IPR benefits for their IPR
worthy Intellectual works.
IPR awareness amongst the students, research
scholars and faculty members
Need and demand based research activities on
Opening up of academic programme/courses for
the benefits of the students of Integral University.
Specialized trainings to academicians and
Courses on IPR awareness
Dissemination of knowledge, information and

Consultancy/projects on patenting of
Who can apply?
can be filed by any of the following persons:-
By any person claiming to be the true and

The IPR regimes have set a stage for economic integration and
its standardization. The IPR Laws help in tuning the economy of the country with
the changing industrial world, to strengthen its position in trade and related
arenas. Moreover, incorporation of such IP Laws provides a protection and
encouragement to the creators or owners for research and development and also a
satisfaction to the consumers that the product purchased are worth (authentic)
the amount paid.
The Indian Government has established statutory,
administrative and judicial framework for protecting the intellectual property
rights in the Indian territory.
