Rubal Walia from Relecura sends us the infographic pictured below, on the state of Indian Patents by looking over data (sources mentioned in the note at the bottom) from the last few years. Their numbers indicate that while the number of patent applications has slowly been rising, the number of patents granted annually has decreased substantially.
Those interested in patent analytics may also want to check out Bangalore/SF based Relecura’s mobile app which, to my knowledge, is one of only two mobile analytics app for patent data. It’s available for free download here (android and iOS). The other app by Patent Buddy LLC is available for download here (iOS only). It would be great if any of our readers who’ve had a chance to use either of these apps let us know what they thought of them in the comments section below!
