India’s government is trying to boost innovation and IP filings by startups and SMEs, but there is some way to go, as WIPR finds out.

India is home to some world-renowned organisations, such as Tata Motors (which owns Jaguar Land Rover); Indian Oil Corporation, an oil and gas company; and Reliance Industries, which claims to be the largest polyester yarn and fibre producer in the world.

While these companies may have established themselves on an international level as dominant forces in their markets, what about the smaller companies that India has to offer?

As do their larger brothers, smaller businesses need a strong grasp of IP if they want to establish themselves among their competition.
