On July 18 2012, I filed a PIL W.P.(C) 4427 of 2012, J.Sai Deepak v. Union of India, challenging the Public Notice issued by the Indian Patent Office prohibiting amendment of National Phase PCT applications before they enter the National Phase. The said PIL was listed before the Chief Justice of the High Court of Delhi today. My submissions on the maintainability of the PIL were heard and notice was issued to the DIPP (since the IPO falls under the DIPP) to respond to the PIL. The next date before the Court is August 29, 2012.
