Strong IPR system in a country facilitates the development of trade and commerce, both at domestic and international level, and provide an edge in the business over competitors. The Government of India has taken concrete steps to establish favourable milieu for creation and protection of Intellectual Property Rights and strengthening IP administration in the country.
