Mahish K. Guru

In an era where innovation drives progress, the role of patent agents is crucial. With a community of 3,950 members and an annual influx of approximately 70,000 patent applications, your contribution is of utmost importance. As agents, you serve as guardians of creativity, safeguarding and recognizing intellectual property on a global scale. In 2023, our community was strengthened by 529 new patent agents, bringing the total to 3,950. With around 70,000 patent applications filed annually, each agent plays a crucial role in fostering innovation, safeguarding intellectual property, and driving our nation's progress in the global innovation landscape.

Dynamics of Patent Processing

The complex process of filing a patent requires not only expertise but also dedication and precision. Assuming all patent applications are processed by Indian patent agents—a reasonable assumption (see attached image) given that Indians file patents overseas and foreigners file in India, simplifying the analysis for ease—it results in each patent agent filing an average of 17 applications per year. This implies that a patent agent has approximately 21 days to dedicate to each application, taking into account the entire filing process and related tasks.

India Set to Scale New Heights

As we navigate the challenges and opportunities within a nation of 1.4 billion people, the demand for skilled patent agents continues to rise. The expected addition of 250-300 new agents in 2024 is a step towards meeting this demand, ensuring that every innovation, regardless of its size, receives the recognition and protection it deserves.

Leveraging AI for Innovation

At, we go beyond simply offering congratulations. We are pioneers in leveraging the power of AI to revolutionize the patent filing process. Our mission is to reduce the workload of patent agents, improve the efficiency of patent filings, and ensure that every brilliant invention receives the recognition and celebration it deserves. By integrating AI into the patent lifecycle, our goal is to cultivate a more inclusive and dynamic innovation ecosystem.
