The Scheme for Facilitating Start-ups Intellectual Property Protection (SIPP) endows start-ups with a lot of benefits. To begin with, the SIPP has recognized facilitators who are to assist start-ups in gaining intellectual property protection. The cost of the Facilitators will be borne by the Government. In a notice dated 08.06.2016 the Government issued guidelines to the start-ups with regard to the way in which they can choose a facilitator. For more information on how to choose a facilitator and the benefits of SIPP please refer to our earlier blog post.
The most important requirement to avail the benefit of SIPP is to first gain recognition as a start-up.
