When a trademark application is filed, the India Trademark Office will review the application. Then an official receipt will be issued.

TMO will review the submission and it usually takes about 1 month for the formality check review.

Your trademark will then go through a substantial examination, which will last about 4 months.

If everything goes smoothly, we will receive a preliminary publication notice within 6 months from the application date.

After a 4-month opposition period, the trademark will be approved for registration.

The whole process takes about 12 months in total.
