The amendments has also proposed streamlining of fees on the basis of the number of trade registration marks being applied for. The validity of the Trade Certificate has also been increased from 12 months to 5 years.
Further, as the trade certificate and registration marks are proposed to be allotted online i.e. electronically on the portal, therefore compliance burden regarding Intimation of loss or destruction of a trade certificate and application for duplicate has been removed.
